Album Review
Hannah Mae
Reviewed 2002-10-17 
Pensive punks (ex-Pussycat Trash) with a fine sense of dynamics and a knack for making political lyrics personal and evocative rather than polemical and formulaic (a bit like Fugazi in that respect, as well as in their angular/circular rhythms). Emma "if I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution" Goldman would be pleased.

1. circular bassline, dual f/m vox, nice tempo changes
2. swaying - cool interlocking guitar/basslines
3. rolling, w/handclaps - a more ambiguous answer to Crass's "Bata Motel"? dig the scratchy breakdown!
4. trumpet lends a bit of Dog Faced Hermans feel
5. odd warm guitars
6. sharp guitars, calm confident vox
7. headnodding in an Ex-y way
8. starts and stops, odd (guest) vox
9. Fugazi-ish, spare start, w/trumpet
10. wavering and wiggly, happy revolution - "give a cop a cuddle! how you gonna tame us?"
