After their two first albums and an intense period of activity from 1976 to 1979. The Lurkers was also inactive until 1988, with the exception of three singles issued early 80s. Nor albums neither live concert until 1988, when the original formation decided to come back and to give us this excellent present entitled "wild times again". The formule is the same exact than their two first albums, we mean punk rock, melody, clear voices and a lot of Ramones influence, both on music and lyrics. Nothing more nothing less.

Year:  1990
Label:  Released Emotions
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk  Rock



















This is the one of the most but the most Ramones influenced album of all The Lurkers discography. Voices, chorus, sound, tempo and music schedule is exactly to the New York punk rock maters Ramones. So this is some kind of clone or copy, but actually an excellent copy, taking care of all details, good melodies, guitars and non-stop Ramones tempo. Yeah that's all... but I like it!

"Ripped and torn"
Year:  1995
Label:  S1M

Despite usually everybody consider its two first albums as essentials and best The Lurkers works, it's more than important do not forget this also essential "ripped and torn" from 1995, which then was not much succesful, but with the pass of the time has become as one of the best but the best The Lurkers album. Specially recommended for those who don't use to like this band and those lovers of classic 90s pop punk with optimisc lyrics and positive attitude.
