Zodiac Mindwarp And The Love Reaction ‎– Planet Girl (12″)

Heavy Rock but not quite rocky, Industrial but too tongue in cheek. More like a British Rob Zombie, Mark Manning had the perfect image and nodded towards tech rock, the stuff Billy Idol excelled at.

“Planet Girl,” produced by Bill Drummond (KLF, Big In Japan) and David Balfe (Dalek I,Big In Japan, Teardrop Explodes) suitably notch up the glam rock guitars and add some space effects.

“Dog Faced Driver” sounds like Sigue Sigue Sputnik on rock mode. “Go Go…” is a definite piss-take of the then current American Rawk scene.

“Born To Be Wild” according to the sleeve-notes “was recorded in a fit of childish petulance with the specific intention of making The Cult look like a pile of shit.” It is loud and raw with those Mindwarp growly vocals with the chanted chorus, not a bad cover!
