I'm glad to see that there are some fellow enthusiasts. I've been a fan since the beginning when they were Hurricane Party. Get This was a very cool, very promising EP, and they delivered on that promise with their two Roadstar albums (the second, Glass Mountain, might be my favorite). While I think that Roadstar is actually a better band name, I didn't think that it was a good idea when they ditched Hurricane Party. Even though Hurricane Katrina was a major disaster here, that reason always seemed a little silly to me. Most people wouldn't have taken it that way, and it's not like they had a U.S. tour lined up at that point. By the time they would've made it over here, it would've been okay.

As for The Answer, I liked them when they first came out. I'm sure that I still do to an extent, but I haven't kept up with them very well. I agree that Hurricane Party/Roadstar/early Heaven's Basement were much better. To be fair, Roadstar went through a name change, had issues between the band and management, and who knows what else. Getting some of the chances that The Answer got may have helped, but it seems like Roadstar had some of their own factors working against them as well.

Today, the closest thing that we have to Roadstar is The Treatment (Laurie Mansworth connection again). I like them, but they haven't reached Roadstar highs for me yet.
