The Side Effects were of garage/psych rock stock, but low and behold you'd be mistaken. In fact, this long defunct Athens, GA trip had something more alluring and challenging to offer. Post-punk was more their bag, albeit not of the brooding variety. The commencing "Raining" massages a Gang of Four riff, retooled by
leadman Kit Swartz's chiming staccato aplomb. "French Forest" is doubly more enticing sounding like a spot-on merger of Pylon and Mission of Burma, and "Through With You" delightfully finagles a descending arpeggio you can take to the bank. Bassist Jimmy Ellison passed away from a brain tumor not long after this record hit the market. This ep, so far as I can, tell was the only release to the band's credit, save for an appearance on the Squares Blot Out the Sun compilation.
