Forgotten Rebels: Surfin' On Heroin (1988)



So, The Forgotten Rebels (more HERE), after ten years in the fetid trenches of punk rock, signed to semi-major label (and fiasco-waiting-to-happen) Enigma Records. To capitalize on their previous decade, the label had them re-record their back catalog at 1988 studio prices. Surprisingly, it works damn well (even MRR'S curmudgeon-in-chief, Tim Yohannon, grudgingly accepted it). On top of the clearer-but-not-slicker versions of eight FR hits, you also get four brand-new tunes.  "Let's Go Back" is a catchy parody - if we can use the word - of American jingo-ism (though "A.I.D.S." is definitely one stink-dumb song however you analyze it) and"Rock N' Roll is a Hard Life" is their most loving homage to Mott the Hoople yet:





Track Listing:
1. Bomb The Boats
2. I'm In Love With The System
3. Let's Go Back
4. A.I.D.S.
5. I Left My Heart In Iran
6. Rock & Roll's A Hard Life
7. Little Girl Thrills
8. Live Strippers In Action
9. Hell Begins At Home
10. Elvis Is Dead
11. Surfin' On Heroin
12. FMD
