Though lineups changed through the years and the band's activity was intermittent, Pink Fairies reformed during the mid '80s to record 1987's Kill 'Em and Eat 'Em. Longtime member and sometimes English punk rock producer Larry Wallis served as lead vocalist and primary creative force on this record, which delivers edgy, careening hard rock performed with outright abandon. Standout track "I Might Be Lying" sets aside many of the band's typical meanderings in favor of a straight-ahead, riff-laden attack that defies practically everything released contemporarily in loud guitar rock. The end result reeks of fun, snotty disregard and just a trace of danger, all ingredients that combine to make the Pink Fairies so historically significant if consistently underrated.
