Nearly two decades on it still sounds fresh and vital (ha!) and I feel proud all over again. If only I still had a bunch of copies. I'd give them to people who would love them. Still, it''s pretty cheap on discogs. Go on treat yourself...it's Christmas!
P.S. Note the note on the discogs page:
"remember the lost bands who never had a hope: "checks and credit" by toulouse, it was scratchy, it was great"
(comet gain: "the ballad of a mix tape")
