VIBRATORS: Pure Mania: CD

This, the boys’ first full-length, features much of their “classic” repertoire, including, “Whips and Furs,” “London Girls,” “Stiff Little Fingers” and, of course, “Baby Baby,” which L.A. punkers Shattered Faith covered way back when, and there are bonus live and singles cuts as well, including “We Vibrate.” Considerably more nuanced and prone to openly dancing on the fine line between punk and pub rock than many of their peers, these guys still delivered the goods with the best of ‘em. Rumor has it they’re still out and about. Hopefully they’ll do us the courtesy of cranking out an album of new “classics” rather than rest on their past efforts.
