REVIEW: Mountain Bike - Early Recordings full-length cassette (Howlin' Banana)

Belgium's Mountain Bike have just released a collection of their early recordings (hence the title) on the French label Howlin' Banana.  Each track holds the correct ratio of trash treatment to hummable listen-ability...complete with overdriven, verby vocals, lots of "room sound" and few overdubs or studio frills.  The songs are striaght-forward, well-put together and with just the right amount of quirkiness to make them interesting.  Like dat surf-punk-garage-jangle-pop sound?  Den u gonna dig dis.  Get it here.
