This ex Girl guitarist and now John Taylor sidekick is a great writer and guitarist and this M & T M album kicks ass non stop..he is also on Sheer Greed albums sublime to the Ridiculous’ and Live in London, Ultravox ‘Revelation’ 2 London Cowboy albums, 6 GIRL albums and 5 John Taylor releases.
Ex Girl founder member Gerry Laffy rocks…he sings OK, actually pretty good, but is on fire as a guitarist…. Laffy writes, produces and plays most everything bar drums and bass…this is becoming abit of a classic now.
Has guests from Duran Duran and Stray Cats on this album….bext song is title track but Secret Mission (about Oliver North I think) is rockin too..Laffy writes, produces and plays most everything bar drums and bass…this is becoming abit of a classic now…video by ex hair band vid master Ralph Zimon is brilliant.
