This one skips along at quite a pace

When you get paid to write about music you should stay well clear of the cliché. And the dreaded screamer! If a band or artist's new platter is a return to form, it's best not to mention it; just think it. Likewise, said record may well be a sonic cathedral of sound - but keep it to yourself.

When The Banned recorded Little Girl in 1977 I had no idea it was a cover. Yet despite (cliché ahead warning) nailing it, I think it's safe to say it can't hold a candle to the original.

Syndicate of Sound: often imitated, never bettered, And if you were to say it skips along at quite a pace, I wouldn't argue with you.
