• johnny thunders and the heartbreakers L.A.M.F.: the Lost '77 Mixes (CD, £9.50)

    label: jungle

    The classic 1977 punk album – remastered and repackaged for its 40th anniversary. • Now with 20-page booklet in a ‘remus’ card gatefold sleeve with notes and lyrics. • Sole surviving Heartbreaker Walter Lure is touring ‘LAMF’ with an all-star line-up. * In 1977 this classic punk album had a sound flaw and wasn't heard properly until 1994 - after both former New York Dolls Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan had died. Now songs like Born To Lose and Chinese Rocks are acclaimed as punk anthems. The album has been remastered and repackaged to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Includes 20-page booklet with the background story of recording in punk London, and lyrics, in a card gatefold sleeve. The sole surviving Heartbreaker, Walter Lure, has been playing the album with an all-star line-up (members of Blondie, Replacements, MC5). "That 'L.A.M.F.', the only album by Johnny Thunders' swaggering, smacked-up post New York Dolls outfit, The Heartbreakers, is one of New York punk's defining artefacts (despite being recorded in Britain), is beyond dispute. 12 songs that put the guitarist's abiding passions - Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Phil Spector and Shadow Morton girl groups, glam, garage, trash and junk - in perfect, speedy collision." - Damien Love, Uncut mag, 9/10. Tracklisting: Born To Lose, Baby Talk, All By Myself, I Wanna Be Loved, It's Not Enough, Chinese Rocks, Get Off The Phone, Pirate Love, One Track Mind, I Love You, Goin' Steady, Let Go, Can't Keep My Eyes On You, Do You Love Me. 40:00
