5.0 out of 5 stars God's Lonely Men Strike Again!, 5 Nov 2002
This review is from: Fulham Fallout (Audio CD)
The Lurkers always were the true English Punk band. After the imagery and manufacture of Malcolm McClaren and Bernie Rhodes little outfits along came the Lurkers who actually were four mates from the West London Suburbs who formed a band.
And here is the CD containing the original tracks from the vinyl plus a host of bonus extra's. Love Story sounds like its almost live from an early gig at the Red Cow Hammersmith.
Pete Strides love angst adreline ballads rule supreme with Shadow, I don't need to tell her and Jenny. Punk "call to war" anthems Total War and Self Destruct have that hard innocent edge that was 1977. Anyone who went down the Roxy, Red Cow, Hope and Anchor and even the original Marquee will instantly understand I'm on Heat.
Strides Woolworth Chain Guitar rattles through all tracks accompanied by Esso's thudering bass drum and unfettered cymbols. Howard's vocals are deadpan but make us all feel that it could have been me in front of that microphone, and whether its Nigel, Arturo or Kim on bass the sound is solid.
If there are any kids still out there who want to form a traditional rock/pop group make sure this album is on your influence list!
