Westworld - Where The Action Is (1987)
Westworld consisted of American vocalist Elizabeth Westwood, drummer Nick Burton and former Generation X guitarist Bob Andrews. This was their debut album and I'd describe it as rockabilly-pop with hip-hop beats. No, come back...
The two most successful singles were Sonic Boom Boy which reached no.11 in the UK and Ba-Na-Na-Bam-Boo which got to no.37. They are both pretty good songs, and I also quite like another called Psychotech, but that's about where it ends really. Most of the rest is weak to awful, with thin 80s production and forgettable tunes; the nadir being the track Cheap & Nasty, whose apt title sums up the feel of much of the album.
Great cover, a shame the contents aren't as good. It reached no.49 in the UK chart.
