Are You At Home, Here In My Heart?

I didn't hear the first Heartworms album Space Escapade that was reissued by Darla last year until now. It includes their first (and classic) single "Thanks For the Headache" and originally came out in 1995. Not as solid as the divine follow-up During, but features some knock-em-dead pop songs from Archie Moore and his wife at the time Trisha Roy (Belmondo, The Shapiros). Last time we heard from Archie, it was under the Bye! moniker, but these songs are more in the vein of Black Tambourine and Velocity Girl (both bands he's been in!). Two of them are covers: "Creep" by Radiohead, which reminded me it is actually a still a great song, and "Girl Don't Tell Me" by The Beach Boys, also covered recently by none other than Vivian Girls!

That's the single most wholesome picture ever to appear on a pop record :)

Not familiar with Heartworms, but looks like I should be. Thanks.
