LONDON (Buy CDs by this artist)
Animal Games (UK MCA) 1978

Signed to an unhip label, London cut one lone LP without a proper producer, yet still earned posthumous notoriety when drummer Jon Moss, following stints in the Damned and other bands, surfaced in Culture Club. For London's part, maybe a producer could have sorted out the confusion that dominates Animal Games — an angry Pistols/Who wallop on one hand and a strong pop sensibility on the other, plus a vocalist who makes Hugh Cornwell sound like Paul McCartney. Still, two slashing yet tuneful tracks suggest the exciting sound that might have been.

[Jon Young]
