Album Review

Though history rarely credits the Lurkers as much more than West London's answer to the Ramones, think carefully before you assume it's a put-down. Da bruddahs influenced many groups, after all, but how many of them responded by taking the New Yorkers' blueprint and making it wholly their own?
