Assertion A Great Refusal

The self-proclaimed “volatile duo” of Chad and Rabo, from Vancouver by way of Fredericton NB, provide listeners with an interesting musical pastiche. Sometimes they sing, sometimes they rap, and occasionally they shout. Hints of the Minutemen and by natural extension, Firehose, Sebadoh and a bit of old style New Wave show up throughout this mix of live and studio material. It’s a little oddball at times but still pretty good. (Independent)
