Another neat little 7" from the Thems Good stable : this time featuring Scottish pop-punkers Beauty School Dropout. Two tracks and I guess, like the recent Vanilla Pod 7", one of them is exclusive to this release. The first and probable album track 'Best Kept Secret' is a gloriously frenetic, yet tuneful, sing-a-long. Its utterly catchy and is probably gonna be a regular on every compilation tape I make for months to come. Alas, the b-side on this release, 'Bad Luck', isn't quite up to the high standards of the first but its still a pretty impressive melodic punk blast.

Could have done with another track but on the basis of this 7" their debut album is shaping up to be quite an event.
