This was one wacky, wacky electronic group.....

They're actually a surprisingly large influence on 90s electronica/rave....not that it'll count for much...sigh

Very cool, groundbreaking and influential band, but considering the chances that their better known Madchester contemporaries like the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays presumably face, this will never happen.

Pacific State is phenomenal.
