No ones really sounded like us since weve been away, says Skin. I think that people are ready for a bit of in-yer-face tuneful rock music again. I see us in competition with every band thats out there and I think were better than we were before. If we didnt feel like that, it would be sad and pathetic.
The Greatest Hits record Smashes and Trashes is a 15-track career-embracing album. It features classic moments from their first two Top Ten albums Paranoid & Sunburnt, Stoosh and their 1999 album Post Orgasmic Chill. From the rejoiceful Weak to the anthemic Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good) its a timeless record brimming with hits, which is translated into the here and now in the form of their three brand new tracks; Because Of You, Tear The Place Up and Squander.
