WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU (Buy CDs by this artist)
I Wish I Knew EP (All the Madmen) 1987
Everywhen (TVT) 1989

Pure pop lives in the luscious textures of this snazzy London quartet. Despite the stupid name, We Are Going to Eat You have a magic formula, blending Julie Sorrel's cool, heavenly voice, Paul Harding's bracing guitar chords and catchy, other-worldly tunes, largely written by drummer Chris Knowles, once the only male in a pop-punk band called Hagar the Womb. While the 12-inch EP is decent enough, Everywhen is a gas, with "If You Believe," "Glory" and "Each Life a Mystery" achieving a state of three-minute grace. File with Buzzcocks, Primitives, Darling Buds.

[Jon Young]
