Most of these tunes, up to and including the Love cover (track 5) of a song that I never could make out lyrically when Arthur Lee spat it out, are strong. Some are more derivative of Lush, J&M C, or Unrest, for example, but all these bands are deserving of imitation, since all of them also look to the same influences as does Black T. However, the best song by far, "Throw Aggi From the Bridge," deserves to be enshrined as a classic "bad girl wants the good guy" song. Overall, while a bit too in love with echo and reverb (band sounds like it records in the bathroom; the singer often sounds as if she's in a wind tunnel, also characteristic of Slumberland label mates Aislers Set and Henry's Dress inter alia) solid, ending a very brief assortment of songs that capture in punchy yet somehow understated and modest fashion the collision of the early 60s with the late 80s.
More people should have this disc - in a better world, it would be considered essential!
