Pop Will Eat Itself/Nasty Rox Inc: Town & Country Club, London

Ian Gittins, Melody Maker, 11 February 1989

NASTY ROX INC look like slobs but have a beat which cuts it. Their rock/hip hop amalgam makes all the right moves, yet never manages to excite. The dense beat bites deep, they all sport cowboy hats, yet still we yawn. They're very state-of-the-art, I'm sure. But well, really, so what?
