Consumer Guide Reviews:

Yuppie Drone [PVC EP, 1986]
Two folkie "brothers" with cheap electronic instruments as well as acoustic guitars. Also with half-decent day jobs, I bet--they know the texture of selling out. Their jabs at the international monetary system and the world leader they dub the Great Rondini are simple and telling, and there can never be too many of them. B+
