Will Damage Your Health: The Cigarettes

28081977_350_350.jpgSo, the year was 1979 when “Will Damage Your Health” was released by the Cigarettes. So when I saw this album, I was intrigued. This trio consisted of vocalist and bassist Steve Taylor, vocalist and guitarist Rob Smith, and drummer Adam Palmer. The band only released one album and that was a compilation album.

The music, you guessed it. It’s Punk. It has fuzzy guitars, great riffs, and leads. The bass is heavy and that is what sticks out. The drum lines are just as great. I think of the the 1960’s Hard Rock scene on speed when I hear their music. Check out “You Were So Young.” It’s a great tune and you’ll understand why they were one of the important Punk bands from the UK even though they had a very short career.
