Reviews & OpinionsCLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, MAY 31 - JUNE 13, 1979: Just as disco music is best heard in a disco, so The Lurkers are probably best appreciated in a club, not from behind a typewriter. However, after clamping on head-phones, turning up the volume and the heat, and imagining I'm surrounded by 100 pogoing loonies, I'm beginning to think the group is hot stuff. Best, and wildest track: 'Suzie Is A Floozie'. Also includes two versions of 'Cyanide'.
