From Toronto, Ontario. The stand-out track on their album is Sunday Love, which ranges from soft to strident keyboard-dominated psychedelia. Crying Into The Deep Lake is also excellent, a superb slice of psychedelia with a haunting keyboard intro. The remainder of the album pales into insignificance alongside these two tracks, but is nonetheless worth obtaining.
Both their 45s were issued in black and white picture sleeves. The first is a wild non-LP punker, written by MacKay and McKim, with particularly eerie lyrics and frantic delivery.
MacKay and McKim also produced the Underworld's single Go Away, and wrote the flip side Bound.
The band's material has received good compilation coverage in recent years:- Feel It on Pebbles, Vol. 9; Make Some Use Of Your Friends, Crying Into The Deep Lake, Roll My Own and You Brought Me Back To My Senses are also all included on Valley Of The Son Of The Gathering Of The Tribe (Gott 3); and Sunday Love can also be found on the Compositions (Gathering Of The Tribe, Vol. 4) compilation. Feel It has also been covered by Question Mark and The Mysterians on their 1999 LP release.
Originals of the album and first 45 are prized collectors items, but the album did enjoy a limited repress recently, and the recent official CD issue includes many extra bonus tracks, from their 45s, plus previously unreleased demos etc. "
