LIGHTNING (Buy CDs by this artist)
Lightning Strike (RCA) 1988

If you've worn out your early Clash records and still can't get enough of the fiery mid-speed sound of '78 Anglopunk, try this enthusiastically derivative London quintet for a good second-hand dose of intelligent and tuneful rock. Adding echoes of various new wave legends, updated lyrics, skillful playing and a bit of hip-hop iconography, Lightning succeeds in reliving a great era with conviction and credibility. The CD adds one track.
