Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Every band has a "moment", and despite uncharacteristic lyrics, this is The Adverts' moment: a great single with a ghoulish sense of humour that made it into the Top 40 and earned them a memorable Top Of The Pops slot. The B-Side, previously heard on The Roxy London WC2 (Jan-Apr 77) compilation, was later re-recorded for their Crossing The Red Sea.

Additional Notes

One some pressings the wording "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" on the bak cover is in pink lettering. Thanks to Paul L. Walsh for the scans.
