Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: Superb L.A. punk that would have been even better had it not been (mis)produced by Steve Jones, who tries making them sound like the Pistols (witness Furious's un-furious Paul Cook-esque drumming and Ingraham's fat guitar sound). "The American In Me" and "Corpus Christi' (Patti Smith goes full-on punk) are absolute smashers.

JIM GREEN/IRA ROBBINS, THE TROUSER PRESS RECORD GUIDE, 1991: The four-song Avengers boasts tight, memorable cuts instrumentally akin to Johnny Thunders and the Sex Pistols, though it's Penelope Houston's intoning words of some depth that makes the difference. Like X without any pretensions; too bad Steve Jones couldn't finish the production (the mix needed him).

Additional Notes

Posthumous release, partially produced by Steve Jones.
