One look at the cover image, shows that things appear seriously amok in the 3Ds' world. A lecherous couple play a drunken card game next to a carnivorous plant, a decapitated body, a rabid dog and a dying angel. Things run amok on the musical front too.

This, the group's third and last album (1996), shifts away from the sloppy fuzz-pop of its predecessors into a more pensive, emotive work. Nonetheless, the 3Dsinnate ability to weld noise and melody together is as strong as ever and the band's tongue-in-cheek quirkiness is never far behind. The feedback-drenched riffs of old snake into darker territory on songs such asDust, while "Riding The Whale" has a sweet expansiveness that suits its title all too well. An album that packs passion, fury and fun into songs that are at times a bit like drinking tequila in a churchyard, all of which makes Strange News verge on the kind of dangerous antics depicted on the cover.
