Life as a crash test dummy is insecure, nasty and short, and it's no wonder the music they make is hardly uplifting. The folkish, world-weary grace that they exhibit, on the other hand, is something you wouldn't expect from a bunch of
anthropomorphic test devices, but it seems like they have had their joints oiled up real well. The mood and the voice of lead dummy Brad Roberts are instantly recognisable and my incentive for putting this up was hearing them on the the supermarket radio. It's a real shame that many people regard this band as a one-hit wonder, based on the song Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm. The album that the song with this highly inspired title(?) is a part of harbours eleven other songs that can all proudly stand up to the big hit.
  1. God shuffled his feet
  2. Afternoons and coffeespoons
  3. Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
  4. In the days of the caveman
  5. Swimming in your ocean
  6. Here I stand before me
  7. I think I'll disappear now
  8. How does a duck know?
  9. When I go out with artists
  10. The psychic
  11. Two knights and maidens
  12. Untitled track
