This is quite simply a great post-punk album: a little poppy but hooky as hell.
1988’s Birth, School, Work, Death was the band’s shot at breaking the States. It didn’t do horribly, but honestly it was too good for a scene that was sucking down Warrant and Poison like they were the second coming.
There’s still a version of The Godfathers kicking around. You can visit them here: http://godfathers.uk.com/.
And as for their great 1988 album? You can pick up a copy for a couple bucks and impress your hipster friends. Happy hunting.
