Reviews & Opinions

RED STARR, SMASH HITS, JULY 10 - 23, 1980: After flirting with punk in 1976/77, the elusive Vic has pursued a very individual course. With good lyrics and melodies, a simple beat and sound sound more acoustic than electric, this sounds at times like everything from earlier decent Dylan to echoey rock 'n' roll to T. Rex, all coaxed into a dark, strange pop with an odd, casual folksy feel to it. Number one in a field of one - seek it out. (8 out of 10).

DAVE McCULLOUGH, 1980
