ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

DOLLAR: ‘Hand Held In Black And White (WEA). The best thing theyve ever done, without doubt. I can hardly believe how many classy 45s there are this week; the fact that even Dollar have come up with a goodie says it all, really. They still look pretty gormless on the sleeve, but the record has much more — well, not substance exactly, but a reasonable facsimile of same. Lots of synths and breathy voices, and beyond all reasonable doubt, a large Hit. Im not being smart, honest — I like it.
