Reviews & Opinions

NEIL TENNANT, SMASH HITS, NOVEMBER 1982: "I say life is pointless, worthless and meaningless": Patrick [sic] Fitzgerald's records have never been cheerful experiences, although he does have an ironic sense of humour. He now plays a little Casino synthesizer as well as his guitar and produces some simple, aching songs given a grim momentum by his apparent despair. Other tracks, however, just irritate with their fourth form "poetry" and musical doodling. A patchy LP but worth a listen. (5 out of 10).
