LITTLE BO BITCH (Buy CDs by this artist)
Little Bo Bitch (UK Cobra) 1979
LONELY BOYS
The Lonely Boys (Harvest) 1979

A rare instance of an American improvement on a British album. Although this fresh-faced band's name and LP title was originally Little Bo Bitch, their US label wisely insisted on changing both. Overlooked in the imbroglio, unfortunately, was the record itself: competent non-wuss power pop with some amusing and memorable tunes, among them "Annoying All the Neighbours" which happily recalls the Members' early rabble-rousing. Andy Arthurs' production makes it all sound good. An album worth picking up in a bargain bin.
