Totally unique and absolutely brilliant - the closest description would be like an artsy Jesus Lizard. Just get Thumb Days (a comp of all the singles) and the Fresh Breath EP, get drunk big time, put em' on and get blown away ! - Then after that, listen to first album of the band they morphed into, U.S. Maple - 'Long Hair In Three Stages' - holy shit, I'll tell ya, it doesn't any better than this !!!!!
