X-ray Spex - Germfree Adolescents - New LP
BACK IN STOCK ON X-RAY CLEAR VINYL!!!
Back in 1978, Ms. Styrene and the gang suddenly make most everything old suddenly obsolete. Love is not all you need. You need germy adolescents to restart the proceedings.
Some punk fans might opt for the early demos and live cuts that show an even wilder version of this outfit, this set still has plenty of jump and fire. While thousands of rock and rollers and other musicians were taking themselves and their instruments oh so serious...meanwhile, a bunch of teenagers take American R&B and Sex Pistols and make music that's more influential than a hundred other British musicians combined. These teens release a few singles and this one album...essential outing. — winch (green noise records)
"In an "x-ray clear” vinyl edition that serves as an ideal prism through which to see the hypocrisy of consumerist culture." Okay dookie. "The one and only LP release from X-RAY SPEX and its irrepressible frontwoman POLY STYRENE has been deemed by everybody from Greil Marcus to Robert Christgau to Spin to Mojo as one of the greatest punk albums ever made."
