The Godfathers: Unreal World

David Cavanagh, Select, April 1991

IT'S TEMPTING to see The Godfathers' career as one delicious vicious circle. No fame means no money, and no money means no fun. The more pissed off they get — and boy do they sound seriously wound-up on Unreal World — the harder they rock. The harder they rock, the further away they get from this country's trivial pursuits, and the less chance of fame they have. A classic no-win situation.
