Reviews & Opinions

MARTIN FRY (of OF ABC), SMASH HITS, APRIL 29TH 1982: The opening duplicates Duran Duran's 'Girls On Film', the rest features feigned anger and pretend energy, also a horn section that makes The Fingers sound like a second generation Jam or a third generation Haircut 100, whichever way you want to look at it. The line that goes "shut your face and listen" sounds so unconvincing. This is the first record in this week's selection that I want to turn into an ashtray.

PUNKY GIBBON: The worst single made by Fingers between 1978 and 1983. Martin Fry's review above is pretty accurate. The B-side is better.
