Their first album, Attack of the Grey Lantern

AotGL is very eccentric and entertaining Britpop with a lot of nods to Buzzcocks and Magazine. Includes classics Wide Open Space, Taxloss, Disgusting, Egg Shaped Fred.

Second album, Six, is a colossal, experimental prog album, largely inspired by The Prisoner - I think all in all there are about 49 different compositions over 14 tracks. Being a Girl and Negative are the best known from this album.

Little Kix is their weakest, it’s fairly bland and poppy but has a couple of great tracks like I Can Only Disappoint U, Until the Next Life, Comes as No Surprise and Soundtrack 4 2 Lovers.

Kleptomania, if you find it on Spotify, is an unfinished album and collection of rarities - best dipped into last. Paul Draper’s solo album is Spooky Action, well worth a listen.
