Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: A monstrous guitar-driven slab of pop noise, avidly celebrating plagiarism-as-art, and singing the praises of nicking other peoples' ideas. 'Whip In My Valise' is a dragging dirge paying homage to S&M. Both sides are excellent.

Additional Notes

As a marketing ploy, Do It pressed 3,000 with a different B-Side, although because they didn't change the labels you had to play the thing to find out. You still do in fact, unless you're one of those people who examine run-out grooves in record fairs. There are also some "accidentally" mispressed copies which play The Hollies on the A-Side.
