Calypso (part ii); or, it says here (different version).

We honor the Classic Penguin look with a quartet in Day Glo Orange kinda.

A great little Oakland band I once placed amongst giants. The flip on this Slumberland split was Rocketship, "It's Going To Be Soon." To paraphrase Bob Pollard, "Long Live Slumberland!"

+1 Cd "and a tacky badge"

When I saw the title of B.1, I immediately bought this ep sound unheard at the late lamentedRed Rhino Records on Goodramgate and rushed back to URY studio's to give it a spin. Ah, York those were some times. Needless to say on the morrow I rushed back into town and bought the Big Boy editions Orange and Green + a Brewin' Up T-shirt now proudly and appropriately hand-me-downed to one of Kicker's Kool Kidz!

BTW, Christopher Hill, a native or York after all, wrote one of my favorite books as an undergrad: The World Turned Upside Down: Radical Ideas During The English Revolution.

Hill gets the last words well the penultimate sentence of his conclusion's paragraph. And of course their heft has them leaning to the LEFT!
