Recensione album

Sheer brilliance! Few fans of the guilty partners can fail to be familiar with the long and glorious history that attends Messrs. Andy Ellison, Martin Gordon, Chris Townson, Ian MacLeod, and Trevor Martin, and here it unfolds in the most lucid fashion — from John's Children to Jook, from Sparks to Jet and on to Radio Stars, 21 songs essentially tell the story of ten years of unabashed genius. Each of the three bands gets its kicks in early — John's Children, with Morrissey mainstay Boz Boorer filling in for the absent Geoff McClelland and Marc Bolan, are represented by four songs midset, plus a dynamite rendering of "Desdemona" at the end; Jet open up with Davy O'List's much underrated "My River" before "Brian Damage," "Nothing to Do with Us," and a marvelous medley wrap up their part of the proceedings; Jook are showcased by Trevor White's "Crazy Kids," enacted here with all the proto-punk savagery that history tends to overlook; and Martin Gordon's brief spell with Sparks is remembered with the B-side "Barbecutie" and "Cover Girl," a Jet mainstay that was originally written with the Mael brothers in mind. And that just leaves listeners with Radio Stars, the only band of them all to enjoy a bona fide hit single.

Because Marc Bolan — soon to become T. Rex — was briefly a member, John's Children are perhaps accorded more reverence by '60s collectors and aficionados than they deserve. Still, they were an interesting, if minor, blip on the British mod and psychedelic scene during their relatively brief existence (1965-1968), although they were perhaps more notable for their flamboyant image and antics than their music. Yardbirds manager Simon Napier-Bell recalled that they were "positively the worst...
