7/10 Clinton Staff review, 05 November 2014

In the other room I can hear the jaggedy tones of ‘77 era Talking Heads but on my stereo is something much more underground and grimy from the same era. Unbelievably, perhaps, these were from Mexborough in South Yorkshire. Surely Mexborough’s best (only?) punk export?  Sadly at the time this was due to be released the record plant went bust and this never got issued. A shame as it’s not bad at all. A dirty cavernous slice of glammy proto-punk with pulsating bass and that rarest of things during the punk era  - a sax solo.  They don’t sound unlike the fledgling Warsaw (pre- Joy Division) with a  fast-paced dingy racket that takes elements of glam, marries them with Roxy Music style art rock and injects a healthy dose of punkish bravado. Glad it’s been released at last.
