CYANIDE PILLS: “Johnny Thunders Lived in Leeds” b/w “She’s So Shallow”: 7”

Two snotty garage punk tracks from Leeds’ Cyanide Pills are featured on this catchy single. The lyrics to “Johnny Thunders Lived in Leeds” are hilarious and the tune is totally rocking, too. It’s a toe tapper for sure, exuding all of the markings of a well-planned recording session. Damaged Goods released the corresponding full length, which is also well worth looking for. Sleazy heroin rock isn’t for everyone. It’s just for everyone with taste.
