    B.P.M. [1991-1994] is a collection of rare and previously-unreleased tracks.
    On B.P.M., short for Bridget, Phil and Mark, this DC art-rock trio compiles singles, B-sides and remixes. Released in 1995, most of the original songs featured here are from 1991-94, the era after singer/bassist Bridget Cross joined the band.
    Named after a album by experimental British jazz-rockers Henry Cow, UNREST is known more for its uptempo numbers, such as the song featured at number seven on this set (no proper song titles are credited on the CD). Signaled by an electronic computer-like bleep, an acoustic guitar keeps the rhythm and the bassline leads the melody, while Robinson's guitar and vocals belt out with a Pogues-like charm. The cut ends with electronic loops of the song morphing into the ether. The next song is influenced by one of Robinson's obsessions, French pop group The Family Fodder. A version of its disjointed, goofy melodies is sung by both Cross and Robinson. Most of the songs on B.P.M. can be found on seven-inch singles from Mark Robinson's Teenbeat label, in their original straight rock form.

  • Critic Reviews
    NME (Magazine) (10/21/95, p.55) - 6 (out of 10) - "...Gnarly and testy at times, annoyingly wimpy at others, they veer between an oddball Factory Records fixation--Cath Carroll tributes and early James covers--to sounding like an undernourished Monkees. The sound of sparkly pop infiltrating the punker underground..."
