Reviews & Opinions

DAVID HEPWORTH, SMASH HITS, AUGUST 22 - SEPTEMBER 3, 1980: While reckoning this lot to be a particularly tiresome bunch of posers (lead singer in particular), I have to admit to loving their sound, the most successful synthesis of rock and disco techniques this side of Blondie. Since parting with producer Bill Nelson, they've kept up the quality with the aid of Mick Glossop and turned out yet another hard and shiny anthem, this time featuring a kiddy chorus. The words could well be claptrap. Who cares?

Additional Notes

A-Side remixed/edited version of the song from The Absolute Game. The label gets the song length wrong for the B-Side.
