"With the first song's catchy two-chord riff, cool wandering bass line, and slightly slower than mid-pace, I thought I was in for a demo of decent garage stuff. Then things soon turned to equally catchy, lo-fi dorky pop punk with sky-high fun factor and fewer predictable riffs than the average band of the sort. I want more. This is Lucky Charms! Whoops, wrong zine."- Dan @ Maximum RocknRoll.
"It’s probably not by accident but these guys completely live up to their name. Just when I thought three-chord pop couldn’t be feasibly reduced anymore and still be fun a band has to come out of nowhere and include four songs on a ninety-minute Maxwell tape prove me wrong. This sounds like some homemade recording experiment gone right with an ear-pleasing blend of garage rock and pop punk. Their last tune, “A Dirty Word,” is approximately twenty-nine words long and The Trites still manage to milk it for every worthwhile moment. This tape just schooled me in the less is more aesthetic." –N.L. Dewart @ Razorcake
If you want an actual tape copy of this, I have 3 left. I also have 4 of the Killed By Modern Problems comp with "Dirty Word" on it.
