It is actually run completly by Julie Doiron. Who do you consider
the lead singer? Julie and Rick are pretty even with the singing.
Chris sings 'Frame' a lot and Mark has sung with Trip a few times too.

Guitar on early tracks, as well as drums and violin...

>is great and the last song by the drummer is absolute shit..

really? I don't agree.... Muff really shows off Mark's agressive style
that is sometimes muffled by Trip slower style. Remember that Mark is
8-10 years older that the rest of the band and he grew up on different
music than the others. The vocals may not be the greatest...oh well.

>In between is a pretty good song by the lead singer featuring neato

Too low of a rating (imo)

>The second piece of vinyl 'Broken Girl' is four solo songs by Julie,

Personally 'Laugh with me' is the best song, but I agree that this piece
of non-recyclable plastic is great! 

>Another great feature of this single is the drumming,

I only have on problem with this 7", its not a 10" or 12", wish 
it was longer
