A fine 4 track E.P. by this Southend-on-Sea based five pieces band. Four nice and self written powerpop tracks with some hints of "The Ruts"-like reggae. I like it very much!

Second and last record by this Erie/PA band. 3 nice self penned (power)pop tracks. You can hear the first single of this group on the famous Shotgun Solution blog. I can't find more informations about this band. No printings or infos on the back cover.
