One Week Of Danger

The Virgins
Yeah, it’s new wave by numbers. But check out them numbers. ‘One Week Of Danger’ is the Fibonacci ratio of the genre – if you think you’ve heard it before, you probably have, because it’s embedded in the DNA of everything that ever made your nostrils flare unconsciously, a primal pulse of pouty ‘My Sharona’ guitars, impeccably arch vocals, deliciously silly woo-hoos and enough Kool-Aid coursing through veins to kill a horse.
