Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: A compilation album that rounds up some of the band's best singles and B-Sides, including the legendary 'T.V. Stars' ("Albert Tatlock! Albert Tatlock!"), 1978's 'Sweet Suburbia', and a live version of 'Of One Skin' unavailable elsewhere. Excellent John Peel liner notes and good song choices make this a pretty nice release. Shit cover, though.
