"...arrived in Lowell 11:05 p.m. on Trauways bus from New York- took approximately 6 hours through New Haven, all of Conn., then rest- stop in Worcester (Chas. Olson's birthplace) and on to Lowell, where we walked first up Central to Merrimack St., then left towards City Hall to see Moody Street bridge and Kerouac's residence at 736 Moody (when he was in highschool), but it was cold and we needed a hotel room (at first figured we could get one on Moody somewhere) so I stopped at phone booth (first looked up Sampas' bar where K. hung out in later years, but no listing) and Marshall suggested looking up hotels, and only one in downtown Lowell (as advertised) was the Kenmore, on Bridge St. We looked on map of streets and walked back up Merrimack to Prescott, turning (after mistaken turn past Lowell city auditorium and across scummy canal on bridge to Bridge St., two blocks down being the old redbrick Kenmore (like most old Lowell buildings). Taciturn crewcut skinny Canuck in bedroom slippers cut in front of us..."

"A cool school vocalist and pianist of considerable ability...impressive sax hero...uncluttered production."
MOJO

"One of Britain's most original bands, proving yet again that restraint and intensity make a uniquely compelling combination. Ingham's vocals are as cool as ever and Flanagan's saxophone even more piquant."
OBSERVER

"Like Zanzibar, it warrants much praise...wit and irony abound."
THE TIMES

"Melody, good-humour, warmth and swing in a contemporary setting. An extraordinary suite...These guys have really captured that New York, small group witty song style."
