Reviews:

"Dislocation Dance experimented with a range of rhythmic, lyrical and instrumentation possibilities that bore richer fruit for Orange Juice, The Smiths, James, Scritti Politti and Haircut 100. Why is it that one band hops about on the fringes, but doesn't actually prize cash out of pockets, while another dives headfirst into the bottomless pit of public acclaim?" (Whisperin' & Hollerin', 2/2006)

"Much remains disarmingly pretty and melodic, as the wonderful instrumental Remind Me illustrates" (Q Magazine, 05/2000)

"Some perfect British indie pop, which bands like Belle and Sebastian owe so much to. It's hard not to be stirred by the infectious hooks of Rosemary or Show Me, and these reissues will restore some credit where it's due" (Exclaim!, 04/2006)

"I have this overwhelming desire to grab you, the reader, by the throat and scream, Hey! Listen! This is one helluva great group!" (Maine Music, 03/1982)
