The album received critical acclaim from both the independent and mainstream press, and also from such rock luminaries as Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis, Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould, and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. They went on to release a further 3 further albums (via Matador, Domino, and the Beggars Banquetlabels ), they toured throughout US/Europe with Dinosaur Jr, The Breeders, Nirvana and Throwing Muses.
