 Good review, haven't gotten to hear this yet, but sure am interested. Tough band to talk about, I have been totally blown away by them and utterly disappointed. Nature of the beast, and they sure are beastly at times. A couple of things. What makes something "Bogus ass-shaking, mic-wrangling wank ...", not that I would ever accuse this band of under-indulging themselves, but what is legit ass-shaking mic wrangling wank? Seems they have been a two-piece with occasional non-Quimby guests for a couple of years as well (resulting in the disappointing shows I have seen). Live I found Leah necessary, though again I might have just caught some bad nights. Anyone seen any of the expanded line-ups? Also, does Lee play on the album? (guess this is lazy, but I don't feel like searching for the answer).

 What's bogus ass-shaking, etc? I intentionally didn't name names. That's another article altogether. As far as I know, Quimby's only been gone for a year, and Lee plays guitar on three or four cuts and glockenspiel on one.

 Fair enough. Saw them play in 2005 as a duo (think Leah just bailed on that tour), that was my basis, but that is neither here nor there. Thanks.
