The Angry Brigade: Angry Samoans

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 11 June 1983

ONE OF the singular charms of Back From Samoa by L.A.'s Angry Samoans is that it's over before you even realise you've put it on the deck. With each side of the record clocking in at under eight minutes, the thoughtful Samoans allow you more time than any other contemporary rock group to watch TV, feed the dog, darn your socks or just about anything.
