Yerself Is Steam still works as a psychedelic trip, the lyrics are barmy and funny, and the sonics are blistering and hypnotic. There's a lovely sense of play in the melodies fighting to be heard above all the buzzing.

What a shame David Baker had to leave, then they followed The Flaming Lips towards an emulation of Daniel Johnston-type melodramatic pop music.

Yerself Is Steam and Boces were exploding masterpieces, and the band were incendiary live, saw them in Newcastle touring Yerself is Steam, a fantastic show!

Easily their best album - they went strictly to the middle of the road after Baker left - which of course made them more popular. This album haunts the wilder edges of the human mind and emotions.
