Reviews & Opinions

RED STARR, SMASH HITS, FEBRUARY 1979: Reasonable collection of mainstream New Wave singles from last year for the non-singles buyer. All established stuff, however, including several hits, and only The Cure offer anything really new and interesting. Still, at least you know what you're getting this time. Dreadful cover. Best trax: choose your own! (5 out of 10)

Additional Notes

SMASH HITS, DECEMBER 1978: The Jam also figure twice on a Polydor new wave compilation album. There are one or two fillers among the 20 tracks, but mostly it's a strong collection - and a good way to catch up on some fine singles you might have neglected to add to your collection in their 7-inch forms. Best tracks are Siouxsie & The Banshees' 'Hong Kong Garden', The Jam's 'In The City', The Stranglers' 'No More Heroes', Sham's 'If The Kids Are United', and The Adverts' 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes'. Also represented are Otway & Barratt, Gen X, The Boys and 999.

SMASH HITS, JANUARY 1979: Release of the new wave compilation "Twenty Of Another Kind", which we told you about last month, has been held up due to objections from Siouxsie & The Banshees over the inclusion of 'Hong Kong Garden'. The Banshees say they weren't asked if they would allow their track to go on, and now they're withholding permission.
