Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: A shabbily-packaged collection of demos largely from 1981, this is for completists only, with some truly diabolical stabs at reggae, studio noodles, and weak songs that offer plenty of clues as to why they went unheard. Adding the explosive debut EP to the CD reissue merely accentuates the vapidity of the unreleased stuff.

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #30, NOVEMBER 1985: Recorded back when men were men and the COCKNEY REJECTS were the heirs apparent to the PISTOLS sound, I was hoping for a real knockout. While most of the tracks here are decent, they are largely studio doodlings, outtakes, jamming etc.. and rarely approach the awesome power and impact of C.R.'s first 2 LP's. For collectors.

Additional Notes

The CD version - incidentally called "Flares 'N' Slippers" - "Unheard Rejects 79/81" according to the disc - was reissued in Germany as Flares 'N' Slipper And Unheard Rejects.
