PARROTS (Buy CDs by this artist)
The Parrots EP (UK Desert Island/Attrix) 1980

A quartet that made promising noises on the Vaultage 78 compilation of Brighton bands fizzles on its EP. Intelligent lyrics and a nascent pop sensibility are couched in ska and reggae rhythms, but a lack of character and drive, especially in the vocals, renders it little more than inoffensively bland.

[Jim Green]
