Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS 5TH-18TH APRIL 1979: Oh dear. I realise that Billy Idol is every other chicklet's fave pop pin-up but I can't, in all honesty, rave about this very ordinary single. It's based on the guitar riff from Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel', and everyone concerned sounds extraordinarily tired. An injection of vitality is called for.

Additional Notes

Brown or black vinyl.
