      Quality fun album

      The Lurkers have to be one of my favourite punk bands, vintage punk rock from the mid 70s with catchy lyrics, riffs and an altogether ideal blend of angst and tunefulness, it's no wonder they were nicknamed the British Ramones. The band from Uxbridge who look like fat blokes down the pub today are still touring albeit with a changed line-up and here is an album which mostly features work from the Fulham's Fallout and God's Lonely Men albums, I would like to see a few more songs from This Dirty Town thrown in as the band adopted a heavier sound during that period.

      This album Last Will and Testament is a compilation of just about all their greatest hits and therefore I definitely recommend buying it! One downside of the album is that misses out probably the band's heaviest number in "Heroin, It's All Over" but you do get a taste of the original bonus tracks "New Guitar in Town" and the rock n roll punk track "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me" and like any other Best of Albums, it has all the anthems: "Shadow", "Jenny", "I Don't Need to Tell her" and a cover of Bo Diddley's "Pills" that is only matched by the New York Dolls version of the track. The album has easily collected the best recordings and sounds pretty polished throughout.

      A must have!
