Reviews & Opinions

STEVE BUSH, SMASH HITS, SEPTEMBER 6 - 19, 1979: Music to irritate your parents by: Ingredients: 1 large slice of New York Dolls; 4 or 5 Thin Lizzy Choruses; a sprinkling of Status Quo and a pinch of 'Babylon's Burning'. Play for approximately three minutes each side, at a high volume, and pretend to play a guitar.

Additional Notes

The A-Side is an edited version of the song from The Crack. B-Side recorded for John Peel.
