LURKERS: The Punk Singles Collection: CD

Jan 29, 2009

A seriously good compendium of this group’s singles, from their first on Beggar’s Banquet to their last. All the hits are here: “Shadow,” “Just Thirteen,” New Guitar in Town,” et al. Most interesting for me was the tracks from their years with Clay Records, which appears the period in which their singles were most consistently good. Jeez, I was completely unaware that they survived that long into the '80s. A newer track, “Go Ahead Punk, Make My Day,” is one monster of a song, with enough hooks and shouty bits to make any Cocksparrer fan smile. So recommended it ain’t funny.
