Snuff: That's Fine 7" (1991)


Snuff's second album proper, Reach, disappointed some people (this author included) both for not being as hard-hitting as the Snuff Said But L.P. and for being a lot less fun then the Flibbiddydibbiddydob E.P. The first half of the album, which, honestly, I thought looked too cheap to be a 'real album' back in 1992, does have some kick-ass songs ("I Know What You Want", "Spend, Spend, Spend") but it starts getting a bit blurry on side two. Of course, in all fairness side two kick's off with a Hammond organ-fulled song that's almost all hook ("That's Fine" are the sole words in the song). In what would become a major component Snuff's catalog, the 7" of "That's Fine" contains a wonderful cover of a Japanese song (I'm told it's sort of like a Japanese equivalent of 'Itsy Bitsy Spider') called "Den Den". It's a shame to have kept the song relegated to B-side status, as it sure would've livened up Reach.

So is Reach a weaker Snuff album or did I just miss something? Let us know in the COMMENTS section
(which is where you'll find the link for the That's Fine 7".)

  2. Loved Reach as still thought it was a lot of fun - was probably still loads more fun than the rest of what I was listening to at the time.

  3. Worst. Snuff. Album. Ever.

    This single and the 'That's Fine (Smile)' 12" were awesome.

    'Reach' really didn't have enough good songs for a single, never mind an album.

  4. Yay! You posted "Den Den"! I heard this song back in 91 and have loved it ever since. Now I can listen to it on my iPod.

  5. I'm also a big fan of "Den Den," it's a punk version of a Japanese children's song:

    There's definitely still some Snuff-styled fun on that album.

    Harsh! I agree it was the weakest of their original releases but I thinkk it would've made a good e.p.
