Review:
John Samson, June 2000

This record really rocks. South African's own Siouxie Sioux, Angie Peach, captures all the anger and aggression of the late 70's punk movement. The album announces itself with the 1 minutes 9 second 'Look Sharp' with a roaring guitar and this is quickly followed by the catchy 'A Lot of Things' (SA Top 20 no 7). 'It's so Luverly' is a brilliantly punky ska tune and which deviates a bit from the pure punk feel of the record. The second side opens with a dark cover of XTC's 'Complicated Game' which is available on the Sharp Cuts vol 3 Compilation CD. It's followed by 'Nightmare' (SA Top 20 no 6) which I think is the standout track on the album with a superb vocal performance by Angie. I do think that Peach ran out of ideas a bit on the last 5 tracks of the second side as they seems to meander somewhat. Still, this side and a half of brillant punk tunes is worth having in any collection. Pity there was no follow up album.
