Well your absolutely correct again. They had what, two or three popular videos/songs that were popular. I actually liked the single after Nice Shot, but not enough to find exactly which one it is/was at this particular time.

The biggest impression I remember them making to me personally is their music did seem to fill a void at that time? They submitted something that wasn't really present at that particular time. (Maybe it was just me) either way you hit it right on the mark dave.

Personally, the only thing they did that worked for me was the 'Short Bus' album. Nothing else comes close. I could play that album right now and again a few times after and it would still hit the mark.

I'm glad that everyone has a slightly different view of this band. When they played London in 2002 the place was fairly rammed so they must of been doing something right.
