Consumer Guide Reviews:

Drawing Fire [Happy Squid EP, 1984]
As the Urinals, they were a joke the world missed. Then they grew up, into symbolic Maoists-manqué, and on this live farewell they finally bloom. Very Mission of Burma in their atmospherically tough attack and undogmatically postpunk attitude--so much so that if they worked Boston instead of L.A. they might still be looking for a pot to piss in. B+
