The Exploited: Troops Of Tomorrow

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 26 June 1982

APART FROM its marvellous cover, which depicts "an Escape From New York vision of a desolated city where punk can express its essential nature of youth anarchy" (a highly revealing bit of blurb, that one), The Exploited's second album is undistinguished by any personal birthmarks. However, it does NOT say "thanks to Gary Bushell" on it – I've searched all over it and it quite definitely does not.
