A collection of early EPs, put together to give the public the chance of hearing Th’ Faith Healers at the start of their short lived career. It starts off with Pop Song which is a raw distorted angry punk song, anything except a pop song really. The vocals are almost spat out.
All the songs have a lo-fi production quality about them, and sound that the band have a free rein to push their instruments, and let go of themselves. The whole experience is very cathartic. There are blasts of intense noise rather than the mesmerizing drone that they would later become associated with. It is refreshing to hear, “ SLLLAAAAGG” being screamed out in track 3 and not outside a kebab shop on a Friday night
It is interesting to compare the raw performance of Reptile Smile and Gorgeous Blue (Flower), before they appear on later more polished recordings.
