Although the ones we quote around the house most of all are from "Here Come the 1-2-3s" and "Robot Parade."

Those kids albums are pretty wonderful, particularly the science one. This is just flat out good rock music:

Roy G Biv is also a jolly good tune. Made car rides with a young sun bearable.

I am always partial to the CD-3 B-side, "For Science."

"Don't Let's Start"

. . .

It was all downhill for me from there.

They were very good live, however. If memory serves, they had Tony Maimone from Pere Ubu playing bass for them at the time.

"Birdhouse in Your Soul." And yeah, they're excellent live.

Back in college I couldn't get enough of their first two albums. For some reason "Flood" didn't do much for me and I lost interest. I didn't know that about Maimone; I saw them at a County fair around time - cool!

I haven't listened to those albums in years, now I know what I'll be listening to next.

I remember "Youth Culture Killed My Dog" as being pretty good.

That's pretty much my experience with them. Loved the first two albums, after that they became a band that I was happy to hear anything by when it turned up on the radio or some other bit of media, but I never felt the need to follow too closely.

It wasn't that I didn't like what I heard by them after that, it just didn't feel essential for me to own it.

I lent my copy of Flood to my friend's niece because she wanted to play "Istanbul, Not Constantinople" at her wedding reception for some reason. That was at least 25 years ago. She never gave it back and I've not particularly missed it.
