Here's your proof that New Zealand isn't completely stuffed full of dullards. These guys must have been nineteen and straight out of ther suburban Auckland High School when they put they put this fabulously funky album together. Traction has a couple of weak moments, but you'd expect that (and how many records do you know that don't?), but the rest of the time it's good time fun with a killer groove, and some sly and wry observations on the side. Unfortunately the band lost their singer, groove, sense of humour and therefore most of their appeal on their 'difficult' second album. But stick with this one. It's cheeky.
