This is the ultimate shoulda-been band, with great vocals, powerful guitars and drums, and catchy in-band songwriting. They played garage mod, psych-heavy rock and highly electrified folk with both muscle and melody, and compared well with their contemporaries. One can only assume they were doomed by a confluence of inadequate distribution (they were on the indie Hit Ton label in the UK), line-up changes, and management that couldn't sustain commercial velocity. Listening to their catalog it's nearly impossible to imagine this band wasn't a huge, chart-topping success.
Repertoire's CD reproduces the band's sole LP (tracks 1-12) and adds a dozen extras for good measure - all mono. This is an excellent single-disc introduction to the band's short catalog (Edsel's "How Does it Feel to Feel?" is another great single disc view). The Retroactive label has issued a complete 2-CD set ("Making Time" and "Biff Bang Pow") that may be too much for some, but once you get a taste, you're likely to want everything they recorded.
