It's the first track off their first album. Fortunately, their first two
albums have been back in print for the past few years. There was a time

I was all geared up to see them last summer -- their first visit to the
UK. Sadly they cancelled, the band having imploded yet again during the
making of the third album.
I guess I'd still like to see them live, but there's not quite the same
