One of the few records that comes to mind where I wouldn't change a single thing. I miss them so much!
such a good record, does exactly what it aims for. Full of youth and energy, and yet has lovely guitar textures. I love the loud rhythm guitar in the foreground, but deeper in the mix is usually the other guitar spoiled with odd effects.
And the singer has a fit scream. Wish she'd break it out more.
Much better than their second record, which was, (excuse the cliche) overproduced and lacked the raw energy.
Modern Day Emma Goldman <3
they were one of my favourite bands when I was 17 or so. I've seen a few people say they weren't much cop live but I saw them three times and they were quality on each occasion from what I recall. That could be nostalgia talking though.
I liked The New Romance as well but I agree it wasn't as energetic as the debut. The last album was a bit of a damp squib, sadly. The self-titled EP deserves a mention as well - Liquid Courage <3
sorting that out now
