If their end was a little squalid and musically disappointing, then their 1988 album, their second release, 'Bummed' promised a bright future before all the wrong stuff screwed with peoples heads and screwed up even more terribly the music. 'Bummed' was proof positive that you could rock and dance at the same time and that the two were not mutually exclusive. With the whole acid house rave scene taking off a year previous and with ecstasy culture taking a grip on the minds and souls of Britains young hedonists, here was a band from Manchester who straddled both sides of the musical mainstream and created a sound that was uniquely their own. Not possible to listen to 'Wrote for Luck' without a big smile on your face if you happen to remember it first time around and it getting played at a rave that was then subsequently shut down by the boys in blue! The only thing that mattered to this band was not giving a shit and partying and this album is a musical expression of that vibe. Great !
