Did you know that one of the band's dad worked on the early development of Sat Nav. They were given a prototype to test, and this is how the band got their name.

At their peak it's the pure, uncensored sound of glorious rock and roll, and at their peak there probably isn't anyone who sounds better than them

The model of inconsistency. When they're great, they're really great, but they also produced a lot of mediocracy.

Many of my friends love this band & they do write some good songs but they never feel complete to me. If only they would develop the songs more, i would probably end up loving this band but they frustrate me so much.

Criminally underrated band, except by fanatics who overrate them.
