Altered Images: Pinky Blue
Mitchell Cohen, Creem, January 1983
CLARE GROGAN has this itsy little boop-be-doop of a voice, and she twists phrases into odd curlicues while her four-piece band plays zesty, danceable (mustn't forget danceable) pop. That's about it. But in the process, Altered Images manages to be both cloyingly modern and strangely reactionary not the easiest trick to pull off and to be a genuine summer-fall of '82 artifact, with all that implies.
