I remember when an older punk rocker friend of mine first turned me on to this record and just being blown away. From start to finish it’s all killer, no filler — a punk/pub rock masterpiece.
A lot of people consider their first record, Teenage Depression, to be their best, but I feel that Life On The Line is when everything really came together for these British rockers. They even had a semi-hit in the UK with the single “Do Anything You Wanna Do”, but beyond that they didn’t make much of a splash in the mainstream.
Eddie And The Hot Rods may have never reached rock stardom, but they have garnered a cult following among the punk rockers who are in the know, and this record will most certainly live on forever.
