Lone Justice, Marquee, London

Richard Cook, New Musical Express, 1985

TWICE I see this group in a couple of weeks and both times I wind up more exhausted than exhilarated. Lone Justice are trying so hard to make a big noise that they blunder on into territory where all is thrash and overload. They're like cowpokes suddenly drunk on metal moonshine.

Total word count of piece: 345
