Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Was this their worst single to date? Probably. A jaunty but dull pop song on side one (although mercifully shorter than the LP version), and a terrible, depressing piano-heavy atmosphere piece on side two which reminds me of the day I spent in Weston-Super-Mare in the 70's with my mum and dad: wasn't allowed to have ice cream or go to the fair, but I could sit on a brick wall.

WAYNE HUSSEY, SMASH HITS, 1986: I quite like The Damned and Rat Scabies is a fine human being but they've lost their melodramatic pop sense on this little ditty. Dave Vanian came to our first ever gig and stood laughing - understandably so - at the side of the sage all the way through. Well, now the laugh's on him, but he's always welcome in my coffin.

Additional Notes

Two songs from Anything. The 7-inch 'Gigolo' is 3:46, the 12" 'Gigolo' is 4:51, the LP 'Gigolo' is 6:02.
