English punk band The Adicts became became known for their distinctive Clockwork Orange ‘Droog' image, which, along with their urgent, uptempo music and light-hearted lyrics, helped set them very much apart from the rest of the genre. The group's third studio album, 1985's Smart Alex, features a whole host of styles and themes, all indelibly stamped with The Adicts own quirky identity. From the sultry singalong of "California," via the stomping, almost-rockabilly "Crazy," to the lilting, 50s-ish "Runaway," no one could ever accuse Smart Alex of being generic, and it remains one of their most endearing and adventurous albums. It also sold well and spent over a month in the Indie charts, peaking at a very respectable No. 7.
