I don't see that strong a resemblance...I guess there's a noticeable
similarity in Rolo's singing and songwriting, but their
manic-depressive "hypno-beat" sound doesn't remind me of the
Butcher at all, nor does their cheesy Casio keyboard sound.

Pity about the Woodentops, actually...I think their first few singles
were fabulous, but they were already past their peak by the time they
put out their first album.
