Cameo: Emotional Violence (Reprise)

Betty Page, New Musical Express, 28 March 1992

WELCOME TO the parallel cosmiverse of Larry Blackmon, where time stands still, and real guys wear codpieces and sport gravity-defying barnets, safe in the knowledge that nothing can harm their patented funky Cameo formula, that trusty old fave that stood them in such platinum-coated stead with 'Word Up' and 'Single Life', with that tried and tested sub-Parliafunkadelic groove, sharp, staccato drumbeat and rapid rapping wrapped up in a simply marvellous pop soul package.

Total word count of piece: 274
