Dangerous Girls

Dangerous GirlsI was never particularly into any Punk bands – exceptions being Alternative TV and Patrik Fitzgerald. The reason I bought the Dangerous Girls single was because they were friends of a friend of a friend. I think I saw them play in Birmingham and this single was a memento of the gig.

One nice thing about going through my vinyl is when I come across something I can barely remember. The b-side I Don’t Want To Eat (With The Family) is typically Punk fodder with the Cockernee ‘fink’ instead of ‘think’ (not part of a Birmingham accent, I believe). The eponymous A-side does sound quite good to my ears. It spends the first three and a half minutes in a slow rhythm but then breaks out into a bit of an enjoyable thrash. I think I have neglected this song unfairly for twenty-eight years.

One nice touch was to see that this was recorded at the same Old Smithy Studos in Kempsey, Worcestershire as Nomad67’s Art Of Individuality album in 2006. Engineered by Muff Murfin who also produced that amazing album so many years later.
