Reviews & Opinions
PUNKY GIBBON: Classic 77 sounding punk with suitably bad production but terrific songs and planety of snotty attitude. Essential sounds from the second division.
SOUNDS, AUGUST 1977: ...another do-it-yourself job, this with four tracks recorded in just 10 hours on April 7. Awful playing and sound quality but the lyrics are powerful and direct and in terms of playing time its good value.
'Lookalikes' and 'Corgi Crap' were subsequently re-recorded for Further Temptations. All three editions of the single came in a gatefold sleeve.
