Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, APRIL 1979: Apart from the fact that most of today's records are heavier sounding, a large chunk of '70s new wave seems to be evolving into re-runs of either '50s rock 'n' roll or, as in this case, late '60s acid-rock. The "mystery" of the song is solved if you speculate that the band were zonked out of their brains when they wrote it. This is not necessarily a criticism; just an observation. In fact both side of the record (the flip is their version of Marc Bolan's '20th Century Boy') are powerfully attractive.
