This threesome is a bit too indifferently cute for its own good, even for a pop combo. Composed of Emma Kupa, who's not exactly a singer, Danny How, who's not much better, and Andy Beswick, the given sobriquet of 'power trio' is as grossly inappropriate as the lyrics are faux naive. Not a hell of a lot gets accomplished, nothing's even vaguely catchy let alone memorable, and cliches are rampant…and rampantly ill delivered. Bar None, not a terribly impressive label, has had a few decent successes to its credit, kinda like Matador, but this ain't one of 'em. About the only thing commentaristic to render is that there's the aroma of SST's innumerable losers here. That's a distinction of sorts…I guess.
