Reviews & Opinions

IAN BIRCH, SMASH HITS, 10TH DECEMBER 1981: The Damned always sneak in a surprise or two. The four songs here recall that early psychedelia of the mid-60's. They've even nicked the old Rolling Stones number, "Citadel', which appeared on 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' - they only 'psychedelic' L.P. Jagger & Co. ever made. Not bad at all.

Additional Notes

This single was made in Holland, for the UK. It was also released in Germany on 12" (NEMS - INT126.900) - if you want this EP on vinyl, opt for this pressing because it has superior sound to the UK single.
