THE CELIBATE RIFLES - s/t LP 1984

Sydney is calling and on the phone are The Celibate Rifles with their second album on Megadisc. Nine fantastic catchy and powerful songs and Australian rock historian Ian McFarlane described it as "still rough-hewn but with more variation, style and power than the debut". David Fricke of Rolling Stone felt it displayed "urban teen frenzy with lyricist Lovelock's adult fears erupting in a glowing atomic fireball of bazooka guitars and terminal volume". I can only underline that! Should you want more after listening to this slab, don't miss Quintessentially Yours, a compilation of early stuff. The band is still active and recently a limited album Roman Beach Party was released on Area Pirata. May rules!

- Great Thx to Fredrik -
