I've had this album on CD for a few years now thanks to a well purchased import but I'm glad it's finally received a UK CD release in it's own right. Why did it take so long? Surely one of the UKs finest bands and one of their first phase of albums - why the hold up guys?!

Anyway, I love this to bits. It's got a really nice vibe thoughtout. The production is kinda spacious and a bit mysterious - production on a par to The Clash's Combat Rock like it was recorded in a warehouse in the desert or something but that's where the Clash comparisons end.

I believe Pete provided the vocals to "Hollow Inside" whilst he was on anti-depressants and it certainly seems that way. "Why She's The Girl From The Chainstore" surely another highlight and a frantic Steve Diggle delivers an onslaught ode to a hum-drum female existance lyrically similar to XTC's Battery Brides. Just a stunning delivery. Alongside this, "Mad Mad Judy" is another 1000mph Diggle onslaught of pure brillance - man she must be some mad bitch! - we're also treated to the demo with this release (although it's very rough round the edges). That said "Sitting Round At Home" has Diggle in an almost chilled John Lennon kinda vibe which he manages to control until the chorus where he just can't help himself breaks free into a punk thrash - It's all highly entertaining particularly when Shelley joins him on the dual vocal - the outro has Diggle ranting into the far distance.

File "Strange Thing" next to "Hollow Inside" another of Shelley's ode to Prozac whilst taking a ghost ride (just what were they doing in the studio?!).

Excellent classics of (meta)punk music! Very influential to new groups pop/new wave of later periods and of today. It is one that I cannot forget from these years.

Not quite as brilliant as it's two predecessors "kitchen" and "love bites" but still well worth having. The 2nd disc of extras is really good. Sadly, this package seems to be discontinued now.

This is the third album the band brought out and in my opinion is just as good as the first two.

less cheery power pop on this, more edge of psychedelic breakdown. And better for it. Great extras that keep giving too.
