Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #7, JULY 1983: We've got the Power? Oh yeah? You must have lost it before you recorded this. Actually, it's not that bad at all - I just couldn't resist. There are a few decent "skunk" tracks here, but most plod along with no special spark.

PAUL CASTLES, PUNK LIVES #8, 1983: Red Alert stem from one of the rundown wastelands of the North-East: Sunderland is one of those places that if you saw a before and after photo after a bomb had landed, you wouldn't put a fiver on which picture was taken first. [Read full review here]

Additional Notes

The LP was reissued as Rebels In Society in 1997.
