ADICTS, THE: Twenty-Seven: CD

Here’s a re-release of their first comeback album from 1993. Everyone should know who these guys are. If you don’t, they are an old punk rock band from the UK in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s who dressed like characters from A Clockwork Orange. At the time, it was a fairly original niche in the scene. Over twenty-five years later, I am far less impressed. I mean even KISS took off their makeup when they got old and creepy. I really mean it when I say old and creepy, too. Just take a look at their website. Regardless, this is a pretty standard re-release. Not quite as catchy as the music that made them huge in the early ‘80s, but still catchy pop punk that if you were a fan and don’t already own this, you should pick it up. If you are brave, you could check them out live too, because they are still together and touring with their original line up.
