Title: Single Of The Week: Suicide Alley
Publication: NME
Date: Saturday 19th August 1989
Writer: Steven Wells


White Rock Rebelboy Single Of The Week! Check the letter this band sent to me - "We are the suicide of the Non - Generation. We are as far away from anything in the ‘80s as possible (eg '80s pop automation, the long running saga of the whimsical pop essay and the intrinsic musical sculptures of post modernism)".

This records positively fizzes with Clash Mk I Juice. Eeeee! (pulls muffler tighter and clutches ferret feverishly) I remember a time - long before Crass ruined everything - when fresh faced little boys in gaudy T-shirts made exciting rock ‘n’ roll which they were convinced would shame the world into improvement. Retrogressive, exciting and inspired. You’ll probably hate it.
