The Flying Lizards

Top Ten

(Statik [France])


Order This CD

Though hardly the "Top Ten," given that it does not include their version of "Money (That's What I Want)," the Lizards are great fun to play for people with no sense of humor; their bland run-throughs of rock oldies have a high annoyance factor: rock `n' roll as Rest `'n Relaxation, stripped of any trace of passion. "Sex Machine" is especially fun, because it plays to what we all believe about the English anyway.

The instrumentation is so spare their rendition of "Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On" could be a Gang of Four out-take. The vocalist reads the lyrics as though she's the announcer on the loudspeakers in the film version of Nineteen Eighty-Four ("PURPLE HAZE IS IN MY BRAIN!").
