This little cassette sampler (though it has a "cassette single" logo on it!) was my introduction to the New FADs in 1991. It's brilliance encapsulated, though it lacks some of their weirder and more adventurous styles. This slim promo provided three of their best driving, groovy, rhythmic baggy-krautrock jams off that first album (two are remixed versions). Grabbing it out of the free bin at Rockin' Rudy's that day led to a lifelong enjoyment of all of their music, limited though the group's discography is.
