Album Review: The Wolfmen - 'Married To The Eiffel Tower'

Stripped of any previous success and shamefully dull

At 17, Marco Pirroni played guitar for Siouxsie Sioux at the 100 Club while Sid Vicious bashed the shit out of the drums. At 20 he co-wrote ‘Kings Of The Wild Frontier’ with Adam Ant, one of the most gleefully camp records ever made. Since then?

A topsy-turvy credit list that peaks with Sinéad O’Connor’s debut and troughs miserably with this, a tackle-out pub singalong gone wrong. O’Connor appears on ‘Jackie, Is It My Birthday?’, stripped of all the mettle that defined her early work. Opener ‘Cat Green Eyes’ is an embarrassing erection aiming to penetrate womankind itself, and the rest is too dull to warrant a mention.
