That’s Life

The Sham album reviewed in Canadian anarchist paper Vacant Lot, number 1, Jan-Feb 1979.

That’s Life – Sham 69
If you enjoyed their first album you’ll probably like this one as well. Over all, it’s quite good, except two songs. The worst one, Everybody’s Right Everybody’s Wrong, is really hokey, and sounds like a shitty folk song. Is This Me Or Is This You – I found to be slightly repetitious. The two best songs are Who Gives A Damn which has, amongst other things, excellent vocals, and Sunday Morning Nightmare, is very powerful, and right on tune. As well as good music, throughout the album there are also bits of dialogue which serve as platforms for each song and are generally humorous.
All things considered, it’s probably worth buying, definitely worth stealing and available at the usual places.
