Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, JUNE 28 - JULY 11, 1979: Here's where I upset the applecart again. I guess you'll think I'm anti-Punk if I say one word against the Pistols. But if I'm deeply suspicious of most Pistols "product" that's precisely because I'm pro Punk. Yes, they shook up a lot of stuffy bozos. Yes, they helped to inspire a new wave of talent. Yes, they recorded some stupendous tracks. But below the superficial image they were as contrived and phoney as a 7p piece. As for sid Vicious, judging by his commendable performance on 'Something Else', and his slightly less worthy rendition of this other Eddie Cochran classic, he'd have done better to join a rock 'n' roll band than to clown his way to the mortuary, desperately trying to live up to an image that was nothing if not pathetic. R.I.P.

PUNKY GIBBON: More product from The Great Rock N Roll Swindle: 'C'mon Everybody' and 'Watcha...' are identical to the LP versions, but the 'Symphony' is instrumental (whereas the LP version has Talcy Malcy rasping on it). Fun, but 'C'mon Everybody' has always seemed a trifle tame to these ears and 'Watcha' is definitely a throwaway (even the band are bored; "Oi, Paul, how about 'No Fun'?")

Additional Notes

'C'mon Everybody' is listed as 2:10 on label: I have stated correct length.
