Anti-Nowhere League

  • Anti-Nowhere League [Faulty Products EP, 1982] B+

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Anti-Nowhere League [Faulty Products EP, 1982]
"And I drunk that/And I drunk this/And I spewed up on a pint of piss/So what?" barely suggests the delicious flavor of the cheerful, scabrous, utterly lumpish banned-in-Britain B side to their laff-riot remake of Ralph McTell's "Streets of London." Unfortunately, the U.S. release is extended half to death by heavy-punk originals yclept "I hate . . . People" and "Let's Break the Law." Be grateful they got lucky twice. B+
