Band of Susans: Love Agenda (Blast First LP/Cassette/CD)

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 15 April 1989

AS DOYENS of the New York post-everything underground scene and inheritors of the glistening mantle once worn by Television, Band Of Susans never clutch at straws. Their debut LP, Hope Against Hope, mixed caustic political sagas with energised, distorted guitar tangos to destablising effect. Love Agenda raises the warp-factor further and places them in a category of their own, with the massed ranks of the competition choking on their exhaust fumes.
