This Toronto trio would've fit right in alongside shape-of-grunge-to-come pork-porkers of the Head Of David/Janitors/Scratch Acid ilk back in the mid-'80s. Given the blues-less riff propulsion, back-of-the-mix vocal chants and especially the drum wallop of "Headache" and "Knife in the Water" (shades of Breaking Circus' "Knife in the Marathon"?), it's surprising Steve Albini isn't the producer. They're big on punk drone and fond of trash-compacted art-noise buzz, too -- notably in "Nausea." But the instructively titled "Get Off" and "Wasted" are where they really open a can of nerd whoop-ass.
