New 1-2 - Infully Visible (1997)

Oh boy! An excuse for us to invoke the name of the Primrods! The double-guitar attack-ack-ack-ack of the New 1-2 was a pretty special thing. Especially when the lead track gleefully steals lyrics from Public Enemy (for no apparent reason).

That said, we're still puzzled by the final track and its electronic loops.

It should be noted that this was released in an era when VOX had not only dropped down to the smaller format that would ultimately lead to its ruin transforming into the Calgary Straight, but also when the paper doubled down on including both a cover story AND a lead record review from local bands:

Not that we're complaining, though.
