THE PRETENDERS – “Brass In Pocket” / “Swinging London” / “Nervous But Shy” (A Real Recording ARE 11) November 1979
The Pretenders ‘Brass In Pocket’ – Well, they may be keeping us waiting a sinful long time for their debut album, but as long as they can put out singles as simple and easy as this then they’ve got good reason to be confident.
This is less of a song than a series of remarks that gets its hooks in you with one perfectly simple guitar riff over a light and lovely rhythm. I think she’s got a sexy voice. (Smash Hits)
