German 'Living In Sin' review in the latest Ox Fanzine by Dirk Le Buzz:

"The right ingredients but not the perfect recipe is what I saw in Prima Donna until today. But now they have found it and send me with a double punch right into the ring corner where my pityingly smiling coach can only hand me the spittoon and fix my broken nose.The title track which connects in best Strummer/Jones style and to "lost in the supermarket" or "Death and glory" made me see stars and hoping for the towel to be thrown. The b-side gave me the boot. What could Michael Monroe done anything better and why wasnt this song on the Demolition 23-LP?"
