"Contrary to popular rock'n'roll belief, flash isn't everything. Case in point: It's quite conceivable that no band in rock's hoary history was less flashy, more self-effacing than SKOOSHNY. The name itself, widely disliked even by the band's strongest supporters, is Russian for 'boring.'
"This modest band, with its equally modest official recorded output, consistently produced music of rare quality: spectral harmonies, labyrinthine song structures, and playful, literate lyrics that transcended the low-budget productions to which they were constrained to resort.
"For years a small but devoted coterie of fans, collectors, and writers has remembered SKOOSHNY fondly. Now the opportunity is here to discover a fine, potentially brilliant band lost in limbo."
– Ken Barnes, longtime music commentator and former music editor at USA Today
