Cruising with Eddie & the Hot Rods

Jim Green, Trouser Press, January 1978

THE NEW Eddie and the Hot Rods album cover is black and white. It's got this geezer, lead singer Barrie Masters if you must know, tugging a microphone cord that's twisted around his neck, contorting his face into a grimace, kinda like a baby ensnarled in its own umbilical lifeline. In fact, the record's called Life on the Line.
