OH-OK, "Furthermore What" / 1983 Review by: Mr. Media
They never did amount to anything, and I doubt they could have. Only the record is totally New Wave and features the budding geniuses of Matthew Sweet, Lynda Stipe, and even some help from her big brother Michael, from REM. If you read the credits, this is essentially a Stipe family project, but that doesn't detract from these jangle pop tunes that have a very haunting quality to them, in spite of their innocence. They have been called Atlanta's forgotten band, and when paired with Guadalcanal Diary and the B-52's, it proves the Georgia Satellites' quote that "All good music comes from down south, except doo-wop-- and they can keep it."
