The Art Of Noise, Fountainhead: Hammersmith Odeon, London
Stuart Bailie, Record Mirror, 30 August 1986
FOUNTAINHEAD ARE having a problem selling themselves. They don't want to wear poncey clothes, or go for all that 'Hammersmith, howya doin'?' blarney. But there's nothing to focus your attention on at all. 'Sometimes' could be China Crisis circa '83, and that's another problem; everyone else has moved on from there. 'Heart And Soul' provided the only real excitement, and suggested that the boys get a bigger kick out of playing blues and jazz than this 'modem' dance music.
