Altered Images: Bite (Epic — import LP)

Iman Lababedi, The East Village Eye, August 1983

NEITHER THE prosaic nor the lexicon of love, love is still the emotion Clare Grogan is taking a bite out of. A smooth profuse camouflage of mood and desire swept in musical sensuality. And though a long-time fan (i.e. me) plays spot-the-guise with Altered Images earlier heritage, Bite is essentially a new Clare throwing away those foolish things, the ones that peaked on the excellent second LP Pinky Blue.
