The Stray Cats: Gonna Ball (Arista)
Richard Cook, NME, 21 November 1981
FOR A trio so preoccupied with a style summed up in a quiff. The Stray Cats can make a pretty mean music. With tough-baby roller coaster rides like 'Runaway Boys' or the seminal 'Stray Cat Strut' I was prepared to take them on; with 'Gonna Ball' I'M NOT SO SURE.
