with Justine. Their singer Simon D used to be in ‘Goth Gods’ The March Violets. Goth this aint, think sleazy grubby rock’n’roll in the same vayne as Zodiac Mindwarp. For the second of the seven I give you THE WATERBOYS
This debut single A Girl Called Johnny by Mike Scott’s new band after Another Pretty Face and Funhouse, may or may not be about Johnny Thunders and/or Patti Smith (a couple of his heroes) a great single featuring some beautiful sax blowing. Next up it's TWINK ex Social Deviant and Pink Fairie with a blast of like the title Psychedelic Punkaroo suggests Psychedelic/Punk. You wouldn’t expect anything less of the fella would ya? Following swiftly on is The Stand by THE ALARM Often dismissed as “Clash copyists” This is a great single, with a great b-side, their finest moment? Now it' time to Git Down (Shake Your Thang) with GAYE BYKERS ON ACID Brilliant name! Brilliant single! A drug addled Punk/Metal/Experimental/Dance car crash of a record. Next on the agenda we have TENPOLE TUDOR The irrepressible Eddie Tenpoles first outing since his work with the Sex Pistols. This is a far better affair. Pub Rock, Punk Rock, like it says on the tin; Real Fun. Finally but by no means least it's the CUDDLY TOYS with It's A Shame. These Glam Romantic chaps are no strangers to this blog, so not much more to say about 'em really.
