The trumpet is bold throughout the album, further accentuating ATS's individuality in a rock world that had gone Nirvana-mad on the one hand and incipiently Britpop on the other. Some songs have a cryptic, strange violence to them, such as "St. Francis," while others, such as the beautiful and blue "King Beer," combine feeling with wry wit (as when a character asks the song's narrator "Didn't you get that from some old hippie song?") as an organ adds to the late-night feeling.
The re-mastered deluxe album reissue includes seven exclusive. Thanks so much for the extra tracks possible for years.

Animals That Swim - the group of beaten-looking thirtysomethings that fronts - are the vehicle for his observations, and having enjoyed a penurious existence for eight years, this gig, after a three-year gap, represents a suitably down-at-heel return to public performance. The group's evident poverty is only matched, however, by the richness of their music. The band was inactive from 2001 to 2011, although Snowstorm issued a best of compilation album, Faded Glamour in 2004, with sleevenotes by Hugh Barker.
