Further Notes:

Subjects for Further Research [1980s]: Sympathizers cite a single-minded if not mad formal acuteness that never narrows into hardcore rant, and 1985's October File reveals an uncommonly riffy-hooky band with a standard sound. Also with the predictable mental tendencies, unfortunately, which seem just fine with Shriekin' Dan Kubinski, though he later denied it. Later, I should also mention, they sounded thrashier.
