Wow, truly the ultimate lost post punk power pop album of the period that will not disappoint, even if you've been looking forward to this for the past 27 years! Setting the scene nicely with the release of Satans Rats stuff last year (and what a collection that was!) and then grabbing the debut for CD release shortly after, this shows where this amazing group were going...and what a place that never was!
Some amazing modern sounds emit from the release, courtesy of top producer and assembled musicians, really capturing the moment with a set with real growing power, expect to be playing this for some years to come!
Better than Blondie on all levels (looks, playing, attitude, image, songs, production) the fact that it was shelved by the record company just adds to the legend of this group. You can sense their total ambition and desire in the whole experience. Wraps up the complete Wendy Wu fronted catalogue when added to the debut CD, and includes the ultra new wave pogo classic `It's always the English', well they always were a punk band at heart and certainly playing live really liked to rough it up.
From the rehearsal shed in Evesham doing Lady is a Tramp to the ultra weird final single We'll win with Visconti at the knobs, and some of the best guitar work either side of the new wave, the fact that they never made it makes them a bit of a time classic capsule, undiluted and pure. A true modern masterpiece!
