Orlando's flagrantly unfashionable punk-pop duo augment their also eponymous 1998 EP with five extra tracks, each a worthy addition to the original's sextet of scorchers. Best reason to buy? The update includes "Celebrity Fist," a nose-thumbing, anti-showbiz sing-along that punctures Hole's "Celebrity Skin" as surely as scissors cut paper. All five newbies are effectively integrated into the EP's running order, with only their slightly rawer production values hinting at any time lag between sessions. Powerhouse drummer Pamela Suzanne Dozier, who left the band shortly after recording wrapped, delivers a stick-breaking swan song, and her girl-group vocal harmonies on "So in Love, So What" lend the tune a comedic air that it rarely enjoys in concert.
Fleshed out to album status, the disc still clocks in at less than 40 minutes; they may be arrogant in every other respect, but Nutrajet know just how far four chords can be pushed.
