STREET BRATS: You’ll Never Walk Alone: 7″

The song on side one fucking sucks. I think they were going for an Exploding Hearts-type thing, but it comes across as very awkward glam rock-influenced Clash, and it sounds like a truck commercial. Things get a bit brighter on the other side: two songs that sound a lot less contrived and almost remind me of Japan’s Practice. The girl in the lower right picture on the cover is Ugly. (No, that’s her name. It says so on the back.)
