Miracle Legion: The Boardwalk, Manchester
Paul Lester, Melody Maker, 22 July 1989
MIRACLE LEGION don't fulfill any of the obligations of my current agenda, being neither a total gross-out bludgeon nor a comatose drift. 'Storyteller' doesn't strike or stroke, it merely grates, The Eagles preying on Television's 'Elevation'. Significantly, you can't actually do anything to Miracle Legion, they don't make you feel like dancing or dying, surely rock's two principal imperatives.
