The Godz: The Smell Of Burning Leather…

Sylvie Simmons, Sounds, 3 June 1978

"WE'RE A rock and roll band!" spits the ugly rock junkie Eric Moore at the handful of people ogling the stage. "That heavy metal shit's okay, punk rock's okay; but we're gonna show you motherfuckers that this is rock and roll!" And there's more. "There ain't nothing special about us. We're just like you. We ain't no rock stars. There's only one thing that makes Godz different – we make the best rock music in the United States!" For once that isn't an exaggeration.
