Reviews & Opinions

BEN FLEET, PUNK LIVES #8, 1983: Attak have taken over exactly where Blitz left off, or to be more exact messed up! [click here for full review]

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #8, SEPTEMBER 1983: This record is better than alot of the LPs being produced by the most recent generations of British punk bands. The guitar-enhancing production here is up to the usual U.K. standard, but these guys have more energy than most of their plodding contemporaries. On the other hand, the lyrics aren't too interesting.

PUNKY GIBBON: After two decidedly mediocre singles, an album which is just more of the same. Although it has a couple of bright spots ('DAGA' and 'Young & Proud' - and even this goes on for too long), and benefits from Gary's gravelly vocals and clear production, this record is entirely bereft of inspiration, with the group trotting out the same tired barre-chords on every song. The only variety is that some songs are played faster than others, and a couple of of tunes ('DAGA II', 'Demon') which feature extended instrumental passages where nothing really happens (they just play the main riff over and over). Even the faster songs tend to drag, which may be partly down to Lindsay's repetitive drumming, but even Rat Scabies would struggle with artless nonsense like 'Face The Slayer', the awful title track, and a really weak version of Wild Thing'.
