Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Another briliant single, '5 Minutes' is even heavier than their previous releases, leading some people to suggest it sounds like heavy meral. They are wrong, it doesn't. The B-Side 'Rok It To The Moon' was an attempt at a Devo-type tune, but it sounds like a Stranglers one instead, albeit more jerky and oddball. A corker.
