Logo Review 'Calculate The Risk'

The perfect alternative punk record

You want to play at rock journalism? It’s easy; try for yourself with Suzie Q’s guide to reviewing Jetplane Landing’s ‘Calculate The Risk’. Mention that there’s four of them; state they count Englishmen and Irishmen among their ranks, then throw in a few spurious comparisons (Thin Lizzy, Shellac and Minor Threat should get you started). Now grab a copy of Roget’s Thesaurus and find a handful of synonyms for masterpiece and brilliant (it makes you seem cleverer than you really are) et voila, the perfect review for the perfect alternative punk record.
