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.Read more ›
Thank you, Doctors.
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.
