This was reviewed in the NME by Dele Fadele, the Observer by John Peel, Sounds by Paul Splotch and the Melody Maker by Everett True.

“Pussy Galore played a vicious street brawl of a set, leaving the impression that the band pursue a musical scorched-earth policy in the hope that the traditions on which they base their impressive music can never be used again.” – John Peel / Observer

“Pussy Galore are immense; coming across like some bastard Kraftwerk with the aid of conventional instruments. They exist in subterranean netherworlds where everything’s gone askew, the telescreens are blank and our deranged minds are at the end of their tether. All preconceptions about ‘the guitar’ are turned around and sold down the river. In their place, shrouded figures wearing death-masks pray for the new sun.” – Dele Fadele / NME

“Jon’s guttural vocals, mixed six times under the PA system, have a perfect counterfoil in the other two guitarists and Julia’s traumatic presence. And, just when you think its all too much, in comes Julia with a thrusting microphone welter, Jon throws his guitar off, and we start all over again.” – Everett True / Melody Maker

“With an extra guitar, Pussy Galore are now 24 rusty cheesewire strings slicing up the kind of scrawny multi-story garage riffs that would have scared even Bryon Gregory’s Cramps.” – Paul Splatch / Sounds
