Reviews & Opinions
PUNKY GIBBON: The Subs go Goth. And my God they are bad at it. This hopelessly produced, abysmally misconceived effort is possibly the worst thing they ever did. Yech.
TIME AND MATTER: Twelve inch black vinyl only release featuring four turgid gothic tracks that had to be re-mixed three times. Captain Scarlet spent so long on the guitar overdubs that Charlie had only just enough time to record the vocals. The result was probably one of the least listenable Subs releases, which was way over budget and didn't sell.
