by The Gun Club
Released: Jan 1982
Label: Sympathy For The Record Industry
The band was initially slammed for this sophomore release because -- shades of the Clash -- a celebrity producer was on board. Forget about it: Miami is a great LP. Fans Chris Stein and Debby Harry help out, but it's Jeffrey Lee Pearce's swirl of punk, rockabilly and swamp blues that stands out; and his high sense of style never forsakes substance.
