Originally slated to be pressed to 7-inch vinyl for Private Leisure Industries, "Please, Fill Your Bindle!" captures The Most Amazing Century Of Science at its most inventive point to date.

Still in tact, thankfully, are the manic juxtapositions coupled with preferences for brevity that have been the group's hallmarks of the past seven years.
