I’ve had such a hard time to come up with something to write about this one, just as I had with Anders Ã…ngest. It’s really hard to put words to such greatness without using the usual killer and filler words, but everytime IÂ try to make up which my favouriteÂ UK punk records are, this one is on the list wheter I try to make a top 10 or a top 5.
I could probably listen to nothing but the way the singer counts 1-2-3-4 in the start of Amory Buildings for the rest of my life! Is it even possible to sound more energetic and eager to start a song than that? And is it possible to hear that a person have an overbite? To me it sounds like he has. I simply L.O.V.E.Â the hecticÂ wayÂ he spits out the lyrics. And that plunky bass, the paper thin drums and the cheap guitar sound! And the sax that pops up a bit in Amory building! And the farfisa organ in Leave me alone!
This is the second press by the way, the first pressÂ have red/ blue sleeve instead of red/ black, which means that this version is slightly cheaper. Sounds just a good though so why bother? And it’s a really clever package as well, the sleeve folds out like an unglued envelope!
