Rip Rig & Panic: I Am Cold (Virgin)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 19 June 1982

RIP, RIG & PANIC definitely ARE a manifestation of something obscene: music as an expression of HEALTH. Like the kind of swarthy boor who practises sex in order to keep his or her limbs in tune with the physical universe, Rip, Rig & Panic play music because... oh, don’t you see, because they ARE music!
