They were alright, but they didn't rock my world or whatever you teenagers say nowadays.

Yes, things in 1988 were indeed dope and stupid fresh.

I enjoyed their appearance on Conan a while back... though probably wouldn't have liked it as much if it wasn't for Max Weinberg jumping in and playing drums for a bit.

I'm almost certain they were very briefly "def."

I listen to music from the sixties, I don't know what decade I'm supposed to be in!

Anyways, I liked the band. They only released one studio album and one remix collection, right (and maybe some EPs or singles or something)? A pretty solid but brief output.

I liked them enough to track down every bit of their work (besides the remixes, fuck remixes). Definitely one of my favorite acts formed this decade.
