Although sometimes lumped in with UK punk/new wave groups like Bill Mason Band, Ishmael United and Moral Support, Giantkiller’s sound is a bit harder to pigeonhole. The music is definitely aggressive rock with no sugar and spice. And just look at that cover – a photo collage of various depravities of man, most notably a guy jamming a syringe into his vein – not your typical Christian fare, eh? Certainly not for 1980. First time someone popped on this lp my immediate reaction was The Doors. Organ is used extensively, sometimes in a mildly quirky fashion, so I guess you could call at least some of it new wave (The Kingsway issue of this lp dubbed it such), but it seems to have more of a serious tone to it than of the other bands in that scene. On second thought who cares what you call it – it’s a great album. Originally a custom lp picked up by Kingsway and then released in the US on Star Song. Followed by ‘Whose Side Are You On? (1981, called Valley Of Decision on the US release) and Fire Coming Down (1984) ·
