Reviews & Opinions

MIKE STAND, SMASH HITS, 1981: The Upstarts scramble out of the pit that was 'England' (it wasn't fascistic, just awful). This is one of the best "kids unite" anthems punk has pulled out. Mensi believes it right down to his socks and he will not be denied. Largely because of that I expect the Upstarts will be the only survivors of the Rejects/New Punk mess. Great drum sound from the returned prodigal Decca Wade propelling basic, high-speed rock'n'roll. Some day Mensi should let himself sing though, It doesn't automatically make you a nancy.

Additional Notes

A-Side from 2,000,000 Voices LP.
