Oh God; I love it. It's frequently stuck in my head.

As is the phrase : "spurting filthy yoghurt", unfortunately. :(

I’m not keen. The genre - spiky new wave pop - is one I’m particularly fond of, but this has always been cringey, second division stuff. There’s worse things, I guess, but I’d never rush to hear it. Not shit, not hit.

I am guessing the Japanese do masturbate quite a lot. It's a cultural thing.
But somehow when you smile, I can brave bad weather.

Hooky as hell. Not quite the quintessence of Power Pop of that era, but a fair representation. I liked it then, but don't feel the need to hear it again.

Do you like this version better?

Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

You were expecting "Non-Alignment Pact" maybe?

I just listened to that. I don't thank you for the experience.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
