Cat #: PLATE 7
As a long-standing Lurkers fan, I can only wonder why Clay decided to release mediocre material that only serves to tarnish the memory of a once-great '77 punk band. Side one contains two unexciting post-punkish numbers (one being a lame cover of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour"); side two features a commercial synth-pop thang ("By the Heart"), a hot already released punky blast ("Frankenstein Again"), and a decent slower punk-pop cut. Sad.
