Reviews & Opinions

DAVID HEPWORTH, SMASH HITS, APRIL 3-16, 1980: The Angelic Upstarts try walking in the footsteps of their Newcastle ancestors The Animals with 'We Gotta Get Out Of This Place. Never mind the fact that they don't so much walk as limp, a song of any description is an improvement on the closing time rants they have dealt in up to now.

PUNKY GIBBON: Covering the old Animals number about people grinding their lives away at work while striving for escape was a great idea, and this powerful version works like a charm. The invective-laden B-Side isn't too shabby, either. It is worth noting that the A-Side is a different version to the one on the LP, being about 20 seconds shorter (due to a truncated intro).
