I was a J&MC fan throughout the eighties having caught them early on during one of the chaotic Glasgow shows back in 84. I must admit that come the early 90's I thought they had become the 'Ramones' of feedback.
This album changes everything and I just wished I had picked it up four years ago! Not a duff track in sight with, to these ears, the best set of songs on any J&MC album, great trashy lyrics courtesy of the ever cynical Ried brothers, you can sense history in the making as the two songwriters clash between the hate/love rock 'n' roll central theme.
I mean who can not sit back and enjoy a song with the immediate lyrical onslaught of 'I was just a teenage Jesus freak'? Production is huge and the noise guitars and bathtub drums work brilliantly with the tunes and melodies underpinning the chaos.
William sounds so p****d off on some of the tracks that you can almost sense the inevitability of the soon to happen split.
Leaving the very best to last this is a suitable swansong for a group who wouldn't compromise. Totally overlooked upon release this perhaps makes this an even more important masterpiece in the J&MC anti fashion. For Creation & no doubt McGee to take responsibility for the release is a fitting end from where it all started.
