Utah Saints: Something Good (London)
Chuck Eddy, L.A. Weekly, 10 September 1992

When the self-deluded technicians Todd spawned decided that speed-racing and graph-papered computer bombardment was their sole mission, rendering all older music obsolete, another long-trusty species of pop nonsense (i.e. dancey noise-chants that date back as far as Jesse Hill's 'Ooh Poo Pah Doo' and the Dixie Cups' 'Iko Iko') bit the dust.
