Fe2 io  Something Out There/Leave Your Light On 7" single

Fe3 Spraydog  Run the Lights EP 7" EP
Run the Lights Tracks: Some Sort of Corporate Attack/Run the Lights/Us vs Mascis/Jimmy
More iridescent melodies and spark fused pop gems.

Fe4 Spraydog  Citrus Bitumen CD

Finally comes the long player. Produced by Chips McAllister.

'Dinosaur Jr/Sebadoh-influenced shaggy indie mania with a slice of Guided By Voices' inspiration added for good measure. Fuzzy, aching guitars, supple bass, heart-attack drums, just yer usual quietly assured magic.' - Melody Maker

Fe5 Milky Wimpshake Dialling Tone/True Love Will Find You in the End/Don't Let Our Youth Go to Waste 7" single
Dialling tone Instant classic on side A, loving tribute to Daniel Johnston and Jonathan Richman on the other. What more could you want or need?
