The Pursuit of Happiness - Love Junk - 1988


The first LP from this Canadian quintet seemed like a godsend to many aging rock fans; Love Junk combines grown-up irony with obsessive adolescent lust, setting it all in a convincing, energetic hard rock-pop crunch. Lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Moe Berg's lyrics are simultaneously literate, wise, poignant and irremediably horny. The key cut on the LP is the wry "I'm an Adult Now," but that's just for starters; Love Junk is delightful and surprising from beginning to end. Berg's chord changes and structure bear the unmistakable influence of Todd Rundgren, who proved a most simpatico producer as well.-[Glenn Kenny] Trouser Press

Great album - takes me back to the spring of '89 - saw these guys live, they did every song off the album except "She's So Young" and I was bummed 'cause that was my fave- but they did a ferocious rave-up on "Hanky Panky for an encore so all was good in the end!

Thanks for the Downward Road, I bought a vynl version, but it hasn't survived the years.

Saw them live when they came out to Oz, three shows in Melbourne, rocked my world they did, rocked it to the bone.
