Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Recorded and mixed in 3 1/2 hours (and sounding like it), this is loaded with sweary songs like 'Whingeing Little Shitbag' and 'Primary School Punk'. Throughout, the Shanks demonstrate a shocking disregard for studio fidelity or anything approaching subtlety, with a great deal of shouting and an apparent resistance to tuning up. Fun, though Sade fans may beg to differ.
