Review Text Long planned (and frequently delayed) restoration of this Virginia trio's rare and out of print singles and compilation tracks from the early 90's. All 30 tracks make their first appearance on CD here, restoring two of the earliest VHF titles to print, along with a wealth of other impossible to find gems. Covering their most active years, Add This to Rhetoric captures Sloat at their baffling, fragmentary best, dealing out slashing rock sides that bristle with hooks and ear-catching weirdness. Sloat's superbly packaged, handmade/homemade singles were among the finest of their era, and although they appear here on a plain ol' CD, the music still sounds as revelatory as it did 15 years ago. Rifling through ideas with Wire-like efficiency, Pat Foster's trebly, jabbing guitar, Ange Dubuc's rumbling bass, and Dave Bishop's unpredictable drum splatter carried the charge that pretty much invented the VHF label itself. Wearing their influences on their sleeves, the CD includes smashing covers of key tracks by the Clean, Tall Dwarfs, Sun City Girls, and World of Pooh. Booklet includes liner notes from the band and VHF HQ along with period ephemera for a full immersion experience.
