BLACK ABBA: “Betting on Death” b/w “Civilized”: 7”

Proof positive that a dopey synth riff can make a decent song out of even the most threadbare garage-punk plodder. Problem is that I don’t really hear anything resembling an A-side here, just a B-side and a B-minus side. BEST SONG, BEST SONG TITLE, and FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT suspended due to lack of motivation.
