I don't have a clue how to change the world but Gee, aren't
these Rebel Coiffures the most ? I do not mourn the Stiff
Little Fingers - not whilst The Alarm exist to shame and embarrass
every Rockin' Politico (and there aren't that many Left).
Jake Burns' voice has lost its grating, cringeworthy,
pre-public edge but his hair looks just as daft. Gone are the Che
Guevara threads, gone's the leather jacket. For now he sports
the noveau-mode of the latent Ted not seen since that first damp
Autumn's afternoon of Power Pop. Now our hero speaks not of tanks,
guns and the snarling Puppy Dogs of State Oppression but girly guff,
free love and sin as if on a part-exchange scheme with that GIANT of
New Pop Sensibility - Martin ABC.
We cannot bring ourselves to condemn the discussion of
Hetero-Sex in the format of the Rock 'n' Roll lyric. Others have
taken this poor blind substitute for the multi-coloured joys of
masturbation and made it SCORCH!
But does Jake Burns'?
Not yet he doesn't.
