Re-inspired to play guitar by nu post-punk groups like Erase Errata, Meltdown and Quix*o*tic, Tobi's songwriting harken's back to her most musically innovative group, The Go Team. preferring The Raincoats, Young Marble Giants and The Television Personalities to the Gang Of Four, Tobi uses simplicity and starkness as punctuation, creating space for notes to be felt and rhythms heard. her guitar playing is deliberately spare yet meticulous where James' is wild and eccentric, with a 1981 northwest punk/1966 psychedlic flavour - like Ricky Erickson meets Greg Sage in a filed of flowers. all the while, Chris keeps the rhythms solid and driving yet simple, in a modern lovers/tronics kind of way, inciting dancers to chant and yell "SPIDER MAGIC!" until they fall on the floor, exhausted. The singing is classic Tobi Vail style, varying between SCREAMY SCREAMS and WHISPER-CORE. When they switch instruments it is clear their biggest influence is growing up in Olympia, listening to the first Black Flag single while looking at pictures of Mary Weis.
