THEY CAME FROM Dallas. They wrote traditional american riff-rock leaning on the punk side of the fence getting just the right juice out of the guitar you thirst for. This LP wanders into all different kinds of territories - from the Dust Brother produced "Libertine" (acidic dance beat thang) to the beautiful acoustic coda "Hey Sunshine" (also a 7 inch single) - to the total rockin masterpiece "Ave F Blues" - with it's killer harp solo by Jimmie Wood - where they are firmly rooted.

Often compared to the 'Mats; S.T.A.B (Chris Savage - lead guitars; Andy Thompson - lead vocals; Tony Alba - drums; Ian Beach - bass) released one more after this one before calling in quits after releasing the sub-par "To The Quick."
