OK, what can I say about this album and this band, giving you a historical context for the occasionally odd noises on this record?
Firstly, the Doctors of Madness - you've never heard of them, right? Not a surprise. Reviled by the mainstream music press in their time, yet weirdly revered in metal-centric Sheffield of all places, where at the City Hall I saw them literally blow the headlining Be-Bop Deluxe right off the stage. A sub-Bowie, post-glam, post-apocalyptic piece of pretention said the NME, a singer with blue hair and a gargantuan ego, and a violinist for God's sake - and he was called 'Urban Blitz'. What was going on?
So, I will tell you what was going on. In that awful, miserable post-glam, pre-punk wasteland of 1975-1976, when Slade and Bowie had stopped making decent records, when TOTP was wall-to-wall identikit plastic soul, when the kids were feeling so depressed and frustrated and angry, when SOMETHING had to happen, then the history books tell you that punk happened.
Well, it did. Eventually. But in that weird 24 month pre-punk period, some great music exploded - the Hotrods, the Feelgoods, and the mighty Doctors of Madness. For this reviewer, at the time a 16-year old lost soul with spots, no girlfriend, a chip on his shoulder, looking for a riot of his own, these guys had it all. Sheer velocity, the aggression and exhuberant energy of punk (listen to 'Waiting' and 'B-movie Bedtime'), the post Diamond Dogs apocalyptic visions of 'Mainlines' and the downright depressing 'suicide trilogy' of Mitzi's Cure / I think Were Alone Now / Noises of the Evening.

I'm just amazed this is available on CD - I'd have put money on it being long deleted. This, then, is a golden opportunity for anyone who doesn't own it to spend a few quid on a genuinely innovative record that, to use a much-abused cliché, was years ahead of its time. The extra tracks are just a bonus. The Doctors of Madness were the first band I ever saw live - and when they came on stage, it was the equivalent of a chick hatching from the egg and adopting the first thing it saw as its mother. They were brilliant that rainy night in Dunfermline back in 1975, and so were the headlining act, Be-Bop Deluxe. The other two LPs - I wouldn't part with them for anything - never scaled the heights of this eclectic work of genius.

I've been looking for these guys for 15 years. First time I heard them on vinyl back in 1985, on a long winter night in Moscow - and I was absolutely shocked. These guys managed a brilliant transition from post-glam era to an early euphoria of punk, and they could do it like nobody's business. Without them, Adam and his Ants and the likes could not be able to manage a decent chord,and the whole new wave thing would have sucked badly.
Thank you, Doctors.

twas a cold wet night in leeds and a bunch of spotty teens from wakefield went to see their local heroes be bop deluxe play the university , havin seen them in the local pubs and clubs for the past 3 yeears this was the big one , imagine our mood when we told that the be boppers would not be appearing as they had gone to the beeb to record top of the pops , some went home in disgust the hardy few stayed to see the support band doctors of madness , well we had had our party seven can and cadged a funny fag from that hippy who always hung about the uni gates , so on they came guitarist looking like frankensteins monster and a 7 foot ( or so it seemed looking up at him ) singer , 45 minutes later we stood there stunned into disbelief , they were absolutely amazing , kid strange came back on after a raucous applause from the 50 odd of us hardy souls still there and said well there isnt a mainline band so we will do our set again and another 45 minutes later they had repeated the first set .. the next day down to virgin i ran clutching my 2pounds 18p ( great price them days ) and bought this album , since then i have renewed it 4 times and its still one of the top ten albums of a now 1000 plus collection .. buy it love it cherish you wont hear better in many a day

Oxford Polytechnic, 1975 - going to see the then fab Be-Bop Deluxe made famous by the catchy Ships that pass in the night. But who were these weirdos supporting them? An implausibly tall, blue haired singer lisping and spraying occasional spittle over those of us standing at the front. And this manic violinist? And the angst ridden lyrics and music soaring from chasm to clifftop? Were they utterly brilliant or truly awful? I went on to buy this album, and the two of us who saw them played it endlessly. The rest of our schoolfriends who weren't there didn't get it. But over the years Be-Bop Deluxe have long faded from my memory, while this album never has.
I'm astonished and delighted to find you can still buy it, so I'm going to buy it a second time. My family will hate it. But if you were there in the mid-70s and want to understand what was going on in the pre- dawn of punk, this album is an essential link in musical evolution. Amazing. Buy it, try it, love it, or bin it. Whatever you do, you won't have heard anything like it.
