MILTOWN STOWAWAYS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Tension Melee (NZ Unsung) 1983

Funky bass, choppy guitar, smooth horns and strangled vocals make this New Zealand sextet a challenging musical proposition. The political lyrics are strongly worded, but not preachy or prosaic. This album isn't exactly my idea of a good time, but indicative of great skill and abundant imagination. When it works, it's impressive.

[Ira Robbins]
