Flash Cadillac: Sons Of The Beaches

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, September 1975

THEY'VE DONE IT again, and it's starting to get annoying. OK, Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids are great – leagues ahead of any other rock revival act and capable of much more. Anyone who's seen them live knows they can play anything they want, brilliantly. They've also got this keyboard player, Kris "Angelo" Moe, who writes some of the best songs around – instant pop classics with a million hooks, just catchy as hell.
