Editor's note: I don't know anything about this record and I think I want to keep it that way. It's a cool cover, some alternative jazz, hip looking cats from the seventies on the back of the album and a title becoming of the band's name. All right, that's a cop-out. Go ahead, you write their bio then, smart-ass.
