Reviews & Opinions

JOE SHOOEMAN, RECORD COLLECTOR: Somewhere at the middle-to-tail end of the 70s, nestled rather impishly between the latter throes of glam rock and the brief magnesium flash of punk, was a clutch of decent, stompy, tuneful rockers that sometimes had the pub rock epithet bestowed upon them. In the case of Radio Stars, there’s an inherent likeability throughout these classic-sounding rock n roll tracks. Take Elvis Is Dead (Boring) for an instant singalong, or No Russians In Russia for a piece of dottiness that skirts the edges of political comment, before thinking better of it and gawping at the semi-naked shots of Page 3 “Stunna” Kathy St John that adorn the cover. A lovely girl who looks more than ripe for a date down The Feathers with Terry from Minder, where Dave has just put this collection of live and previously unreleased tracks on the jukebox. Good, occasionally dirty, fun.
