Boy, that graphic leaves something to be desired.
Someone by the name of Albert E. Trapezoid put his reputation on the line and wrote a whole article on the The Early Stages. We thank Albert from the bottom of our hearts.
And, also, Terminal Boredom gave a nice review to our latest single.

… hard to beat, but here’s a review that is super positive about one side of the single from Maximum RockNRoll …
“On first listen, this didn’t quite grab me as much as their excellent first EP. The title track meanders loosely around an admittedly catchy melodic figure, but doesn’t really go anywhere.
