I’ve been listening to “48 Crash” by The Gymslips from their only LP release, 1983’s Rockin’ With The Renees. This preceding “Eroded Freedom” by Legion of Parasites back to back for days now.

The Gymslips remind me of if The Runaways clashed with The Slits in 1981. “48 Crash” is a cover of the Suzi Quatro song of the same name. I like the cover much, much better and at times it sounds like they are singing “you’re so younnnng… you’re like a teenaged tiramisu.” They must have added something which sounds like that to the lyrics, because the original lyrics have something different in that verse. Confusing but such a fun song nonetheless. Their track “Drink Problem” ends with the words “… rum makes you… cum.” I highly recommend the LP, I’ve included some tracks before here and here.
