Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Four recordings, each exclusive to this release. The Vipers play power pop, rather boringly as it happens. Shock Treatment sound like rock/pub rock but played faster and a bit angrier, with a tune extremely reminiscent of 'Quick Joey Small'. That leaves Big Self and The Outcasts to provide some proper punk thrills, and they do, even if 'Cyborg' is one of The Outcasts' worst songs (great voice and guitar sound, though). 'Snakes And Ladders' is maybe bit lacking in character vocally, but it has a really catchy chorus and a fantastically spikey guitar solo.
