Replace my vinyl... yeah, baby, YEAH!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Give Daddy the Knife, Cindy (Audio CD)
Bought this on vinyl back in the 80s but it's one of those that I just had to replace with CD so I could listen to it at work and in the car.
Actually saw them perform as Naz Nomad & The Nightmares back in '88 at the Forum in London. Can't remember much as I slept through most of their set; I was on a mega acid comedown and the Street of Dreams was calling, but man what lullabies to soothe me into my slumber...
As another reviewer said, this is very tongue-in-cheek - something the Damned had in common with their contemporaries, Dr & The Medics, with whom the Damned performed not only as Naz but also as The Spooks (please someone release A Pretty Smart Way To Catch A Lobster on CD!) - and yet, it's so listenable. Plenty of nods to the MC5 and Chocolate Watch Band, throw in a bit of The Seeds and away you go.
Still as enjoyable as when I first nodded my trippy head to it 20 years ago, this is one of the best buys I've made this year.
