Reviews & Opinions

MARK ELLEN, SMASH HITS, OCT 30 - NOV 12, 1980: Good grief: where's the aspirin? Suffer the hamfisted hiccup bass, the punch-drunk drums, the headache guitar. Marvel at Charlie Harper's command of the French language - "Oooh-la-la-la Oooh-la-ley!" Mourn the fact that Captain Sensible is playing keyboards when the Subs are nothing but a Sham-faced parody of a parody once known as The Damned.

Additional Notes

Orange or black vinyl (latter is more rare). A-Side later remixed for Diminished Responsibility.
