I think I read somewhere that natives of Sacramento sometimes, or maybe it's just Californians, refer to that city as Sac-town. I really hope this was a joke. It's such an unfortunate moniker. Anyways, that's were these loons come from. Okay, time to make a big claim here, but I'll dare. I think that this was one of the best American bands to come out of the late 70s. It's the perfect combination of New Wave, power pop, punk, and rock. Then throw in layers of weirdness. This sounds much more like some contemporary weird punk band currently ripping off the classics. Listen to the title track and I think you'll feel like Guided By Voices were looting this corpse from time to time.
