    Friends Don't Speak is an amazing album. It reminds me of Dear & The Headlights.

    They can be found, search "six track sound" and "my revenge" not a great volume of output but completely of its time. I'd go as far as say afew bands (MAC, GCWCF, Gallows) might not have made what they did were it not for these boys, DOTR, HTJ, TOOT, an awesome time

    Today I've heard Least Resistant from the band (on an old Rock Sound sampler), but when I went to search for some more material, I couldn't find it anywhere on the webs... does anyone know where to find some more of this?

    Yes, this is the old name of Colour Revolt. Though this seems to also be the name of a band that is using the name.
