Larry Wallis: The Importance Of Being Stiff

Dave Thompson, Goldmine, July 2002

IF YOU KNOW anything about Stiff Records, the first great maverick Indy label of the punk-era British 1970s, you’ll know Larry Wallis. Author of one of the finest singles in that label’s entire canon, 1977’s ‘Police Car’, he also produced a handful of the label’s other best-loved acts, the Adverts and Wreckless Eric included.
