"These mexican youngsters present their home-made debut under the title The Civilized Thing To Do. They recall the crash of the classic Wall of Sound, circa Loveless, against Pavement's roughest work passing through Brian Wilson's Smile spirit. Not quite a civilized act... but these guys know how to throw acid parties."
Or so they say...
Either way, except for Sappho, there is absolutely no other band based in Mexico that resembles, with such elegance and tenderness, the greatest moments of indie rock's dearest and everlasting road. Just ask Kramer what he thought about these kids.
Sappho disbanded late 2007. This is the only album they ever recorded.
