The second Lurkers album found the band, of course, still Die Alive - Tarja* - Luna Park Ride the brittle punk-pop hybrid blueprinted on their debut the previous year, a dynamite collection that simply bristles with hooks.
The single "Out in the Dark" was certainly one of the band's finest moments, but there's not a dull moment in sight as the Lurkers power along.
The original song album is appended on CD with a treasure trove of related material, including five previously unissued demos, plus a clutch of period singles -- "Just Thirteen," since re-immortalized by Germany's Die Toten HosenWhatever Happened To Mary - The Lurkers - Gods Lonely Men proud among these, while the scything "New Guitar In Town," the band's final single before their year's end break-up -- showcases guitarist Pete Stride 's own immediate future, as he teamed up with the Boys' John Plain in a new axe-heavy project.
Elsewhere, the likes of "Suzie Is a Floozie" and "Countdown" are classic Lurkers stormers, while "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me" joins the so-called "pub" version of "Cyanide" in pinpointing the raw musical humor with which the Lurkers frequently laced their best work.
