Trapdoor Swing + Dumb Luck Charm [BOUCD 6613]


"They may have taken four years to release their first album Trapdoor Swing, but it was well worth the wait. Both albums stand the test of time and are just as strong as anything that James, the Mighty Lemon Drops or any of the more highly-touted contemporaries were releasing. A very pleasant listen indeed" (Exclaim!, 05/2006)
