When I picked this up I had NO IDEA what to expect, but the cover art was so quirky and ambiguous I had to get it. Turns out, they sound a bit like if you took Melt-Banana, removed a lot of their technical skill and abrasive intensity, and then made them a lot more goofy and self-indulgent and changed Yasuko into an hyper schoolgirl.

Lots of fun and unpredictable riffing on this disc, coupled with lots of contextless soundbites and sample-laden mid-song intermissions. Definitely glad I bought it.

Bought from Amoeba Music.
