Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, MAY 31 - JUNE 13, 1979: Another sombre one, with Nick intoning the details of his mental breakdown from the depths of a sonorous echo over a heavy-rollin' guitar figure that I'm certain I've heard somewhere else before. A little bit of lonely-in-the-night music, rock 'n' roll style.

Additional Notes

A-Side from Labour Of Lust; B-Side listed as 'Basing St.' on label
