I've got fond memories of seeing them play as far back as when a certain local garage/punk dominated D-I-Y scene started embracing the occasional trestle table of electronic doo-dads.
Saying that, they've never really fit the trappings of D-I-Y's re-embrace of the synthesizer. They left an impression that was more The Bug than Blank Dogs, Company Flow instrumental than "Cold Wave", and Wolf Eyes sign to Sub Pop than Synth Punk. That impression is even stronger after hearing their long awaited debut album. - Nic
