These 15 songs actually comprise all but a handful of the songs that Medium Medium released during their lifetime, taken from their LP The Glitterhouse and a handful of singles. It's anxious punk funk, suitable music for cruising around industrial sites in the English midlands. Aside from "Hungry, So Angry," though, these songs lack the hooks -- irritating as the chorus of "Hungry, So Angry" might be -- that would make them stick in the memory. Andy Lewis' occasional sax distinguishes this a little from some other music in the genre, and the constant finger-popping bass and eerie reverb both act as unifying threads and work against diversity that might have enhanced the group's worth. The enhanced-track portion of the disc contains a promotional video of "Hungry, So Angry."
