This was a single/EP released after Up In Flames, Manitoba's brilliant second album. I think "Jacknuggeted" and "Hendrix with Ko" were the first singles off that record, and this one happened to come with some excellent B-sides any Manitoba fan should not be without.
In addition to the title track, a great song from Up In Flames, this EP has three other songs. The first one is "Ole," a great song much like those on the LP, but, I suppose, cut in favor of others. It's just as good and would fit in perfectly, but he chose to release it herewise. Next is "Thistles and Felt," a fantastic short track that should have been on the album. A stompy little beat runs into delicate triangles... with hilarious consequences, or delightful ones anyway. It's short and sweet, and over before it really even begins. Last is "Seaweed," the only track that departs very much from the late Manitoba style. Sounding like Fridge's "Melodica + Trombone" at first with a seesawing little melody and many maracas, it is soon hijacked by a group of guitars, building to a little climax before dropping out into a simple glockenspiel melody, which slowly whips itself up into a froth again. It's a great closer, though it doesn't really fit with the feel of the other tracks on Up In Flames.
Nothing should stop you from getting this little gem - it's seriously like 3 dollars at Amazon and you can almost certainly find it for that at Amoeba or some such store. Manitoba fans and others alike can enjoy this excellent music.
