Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: A double A-Side that hits home on both fronts. 'Hurry Up Harry' is an insanely catchy (if slightly overlong: one bridge too far) pub knees-up complete with a beery piano solo. It's from the forthcoming LP That's Life. Little wonder this raving punk tune with a memorable footer terrace chorus went into the Top Ten and made life a misery for Harrys throughout the UK. 'No Entry' is exclusive and an equally impressive racket about the band's failure to make it past US borders because of their criminal past. Again, another brilliant chorus ("They don't want us in the USA/We didn't wanna go there anyway")

Additional Notes

The production credit on the sleeve is "Produced by Jimmy Pursey and Dave Parsons". I suspect the label is correct.
