It's too bad this record has gone out of print. Or maybe not, it's unlike anything else in the Discard Records catalog.
I suppose it's similar to Bad Religion's "Into the Unknown" (it doesn't sound like ITU, it just seems that some involved parties would like to see these records forgotten, and buried in a New Mexico garbage dump with copies of E.T. the video game, prove me wrong Dischord!)

"Happy" features a lot of cheesy bubblegum pop songs, with cheesy keyboards, with a lot of funny tongue in cheek lyrics. The problem is that most of the songs are actually kind of catchy, after many years, I really love this record, and can't live without it. If my CD ever dies, I'm gonna flip out. Strangely enough it's become kind of rare, pricey and hard to find.
A friend heard it, and she said it sounded like the Chills from NZ, but not as good.

I also want to add, that if the Snakes were from L.A. "World Upside Down" would probably have been a minor KROQ hit.
