Thanks to Road Crew, “Squad” Watts, Pete Williams, John Roden, Simon Hilliard.
Two singles released from the album were the fantastic Night Nurse and the equally good Movies neither were hits but I do remember Night Nurse being played on the local radio rock show.
The album is really a must as it contains so many good songs, Luxury and Swinging With The Reptiles a good new wave songs. My favourite tracks are the wonderful Muscle Culture and Drive Away.
Sadly Steve Fairnie died in 1993
