This review is from: So Alone (Audio CD)
The wreckage that peers out of the front cover of 'So Alone' suggests a man on the edge, both mischievous and vulnerable. The music contained therein seems to confirm it. An incendiary cover of The Chantays' instrumental, 'Pipeline,' mixes with the grind of 'Daddy Rollin' Stone,' the Pistol-punk of 'London Boys,' the nonsense of the girl-group item, 'Great Big Kiss' and the fragility of 'You Can't Put Your Arms Round A Memory.' Thunders wanders from one style to another, sometimes shambolic, often with a Jaggeresque vocal. By turns energetic and melodic, Thunders's music is always a little wayward but never dull. It isn't perfect; his duet with Peter Perrett, for instance, is messy. But it should appeal to anyone with a penchant for the basics of rock and roll.
