Well this is a first ain't it? We know how those Buzzcocks and Ty Segall's and Oh Sees and Stiff Singles compilations flew off the shelves but they were all done by famous people who already got big and had people keen! So how comes a debut release from Thee MVPs is one of these too? Well there's the logical reasons sure but the main thing is it's ‘that' good! The band have selected ten of the primest cuts from the early-to-present days for you the listener to get acquainted with. 

From the clattering opening numbers of the ‘three piece' days which showcase the band doing their best impressions/rip offs of bands like Harlem and The Black Lips on tracks like "The Lurgy" to some of the more driving pop material shown in previously well received singles like "Edgar," they're covering a lot of ground here. It's got the old crowd favorite/heavy metal shredder "Sauna Song" stacked right up against "Gravesend Song" which has a Strange Boys styled bluesy swing to it with total ‘not proud of my hometown' lyrics to match.

This is indeed a diverse release of early material by a band whose love of garage rock/proto-punk has evolved into the tightly knit unit they are today. If you want to hear charm, fun, clumsiness, steadiness and growth in the same 30 minutes this is the record for you. Featuring out of press 45 songs, rare-shelved cuts and singles from the band's time on the PNKSLM roster, this release may in some way introduce you to Thee MVPs and prime you for their new material in 2017!
