Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Mickey Mouse production and mostly dull tunes. 'SK8 Tough' and 'Between The Eyes' borrow liberally from American hardcore, and although a couple of tracks - 'Rock And Roll Savage', the melodic 'Blinding Stories' - are okay, hoedowns like 'Dirt Boy' and 'Huntington' are stupid and unfunny. Oh, and Harper's vocals are worse than ever.

PAT GILBERT, RECORD COLLECTOR, 1992: Charlie Harper was already knocking on a bit when punk began, but this didn't affect his ability to co-write a wealth of incisive, angry, new wave anthems. And long after punk had rolled over and died, Harper was still hard at it: these two albums from 1982 and 1985, placed back to back on this CD, are evidence that he never lost his songwriting touch. Admittedly, 'Living Dead', ''Ice Age' and 'Miss Teenage U.S.A.' may not be the most imaginative numbers that punk spawned, but they're still competent rock'n'roll. - review of the ENDANGERED SPECIES/HUNINGTON BEACH TWOFER
