This is bubblegum that sticks to the bottom of badass rock’n’roll’s cleats (with a Teenage Head cover thrown in for good measure). Fronted by Tina Lucchesi’s powerhouse vocals, and totally giving off the “switchblade, lipstick, asskick, tough-but-tender” vibe, the Top Ten have released two great 7”s in a row. This one’s a little more AC/DC than Bay City Rollers than the last, and I like ‘em equally as much. It’s also a plus that it’s not too much of a stretch imagining them as a gang in The Warriors.
