…”They’ve hit the right balance, I think, between radio friendly songs like Ke Ke Kitea and real take-no-prisoners belters like Lua Afe, Pate Mo Tou Agaga, Kaleve or Pate Pate – a kind of Pacific Pata Pata – where the percussive drive of their logdrums gives a quite different, unique flavor. Well, you probably figured out by now that I like this one” …. – Ian Anderson FROOTS MAGAZINE UK
