Liverpool band who draw on their large Velvet Underground fetish (even ripping wholesale the bassline from European Son during the fabulously-titled "IPC Sub-editors Dictate our Youth") coupled with a great fixation with drums (all their single sleeves featured them). The result ranges from a kind of beat-heavy drone-pop to wired garage-punk. Their first three singles were issued on their own Aladdin's Cave of Golf label before signing to Domino where the hard-to-find singles were reissued as a mini-album. More recently, an album was issued by Domino, of which one of the singles, The Second Line, was (unfortunately) used in an Evil's (anag.) jeans commercial
