Sledgehammer: The Marquee, London

Garry Bushell, Sounds, 12 April 1980

SUGAR RAY Leonard, undefeated welterweight champion of the world, would seem to be the perfect metaphorical embodiment of the music I like best. As no-nonsense power-punching as an avenging Sweeney snatch squad. As greased-lightning nifty as Red Rum on dexedrine. As tough and hard as the vault door at Fort Knox, and more memorable than the 1966 World Cup Final. Music not unlike that captured for posterity on Greatest Hits, Volume One by the C****** Re*****.

Total word count of piece: 616
