AllMusic Review by

By hook or by crook, this D.C./Baltimore-area band has eked out recordings, first with a cassette-only LP in 1991, and then via four 7" singles, a flexidisc, and one track each on nine compilation LPs. That's not only more than the most anal indie kid could collect without knocking over his grandma for her purse, but it's pure dedication from a band who probably doesn't have much cash. Their reward is this overview, a 22-songer (including two bonus tracks) that not only summarizes 15 tracks from the above, but tacks on seven new and unreleased cuts for anyone who was collecting the group. Led by Terry Banks, who came to attention while overseas as a member of Sarah label band St. Christopher, his own group's mix of the Sarah twee pop strum and hum and the old Creation label/C-86 hard jangle (with a little Wedding Present) form nifty little ditties with clever lyrics.
