I totally disagree.  I liked their sound: very layered, kinda noisy. Sure
they weren't as easily accessible as straightforward pop, but they made (to

lovely gown during their set.  (True!  Its champagne coloured with sequins

effectively.  Liked the Fall-sounding tunes).

They were impressive.  The last time I saw them was a million years ago (or
1992) when they opened for Sonic Youth in a venue that was way too big for

doing a very good job of it.  For shame.
