Reviews & Opinions

CHRIS HEATH, SMASH HITS, JUNE 1985: Back in 1976 The Damned, one of the first punk groups, used to really live up their name. These days though they've mellowed out and just make jokey, vaguely pleasant pop songs like 'Shadow Of Love' which they're promoting with a massive 40-date tour, as advertised on the sleeve. Myself, I'd rather go and see Bruce Springsteen. (Right, that's it. You're fired - Ed.)

Additional Notes

'The Shadow Of Love' is taken from Phantasmagoria. The second single of the doublepack contains two of the three tracks from Rat Scabies' solo single of 1984, Let There Be Rats.
