A fantastic album. I can see why they didn't continue under the name The Evens, as it's a different sound with the bass added. Coriky is the Evens + Joe Lally from Fugazi on bass. If you can imagine The Evens with a slightly more funky, aggressive sound like Fugazi... that's what you get! And there's no way that can ever go wrong. What a great debut album!! smiledozer
This record was announced for release when I was sick with Covid. X ,always has a special place in my heart since late 70’s early 80’s.
It just made my day!!
Especially the song I gotta fever!! seanstabu
