Real substance



In amongst the Boomtown Rats, The Pretenders, Visage, AC/DC, The B-52s, Marianne Faithful and others, is this great little review of Time Goes By So Slow by David Hepworth in the 15-28th November 1979 issue of Smash Hits.  Thanks again to Brian McCloskey at Like Punk Never Happened for cataloguing these [1].


THE DISTRACTIONS


Time Goes By So Slow (Factory / Island)

Manchester's newest entries into the sensitivity stakes are five guys old enough to be Sad Cafe but, thank the lord, they're anything but.  Their hazy, tuneful approach could very well have come from the late sixties and I have a feeling that these guys could prove to have real substance.
