Existing comments about this CD

From: M. Allen Date: March 30, 2002 at 0:27
For diehard sleaze-glam fans only, due to a total lack of originality. A couple of tracks are okay, but none of the songs really grab you, unless you enjoy trashy glam with the usual cheezy guitars-cheezy lyrics-cheezy posturing formula. Avoid this CD and go get some Poison or Tigertailz if you want some real kickass glam-metal. Sure, listening to his album is better than sticking tattoo needles in your eyes, but not by much.

From: Kim Date: April 29, 2002 at 15:28
Just got this one...........What a waste of money. Bad singer, descent musicians, but bad tracks.

From: TIM Date: April 29, 2002 at 19:24
We must have gone shopping at the same places Kim. I bought this about 2 weeks ago at a pawn shop for .99 cents. I definately overpaid.

From: Glammiemonster Date: May 8, 2002 at 6:16
Scraping the bottom of the glam barrel in terms of looks and musicianship. Believe it or not they made another album, which is just as bad.

From: macD Date: June 8, 2002 at 10:48
May Handsome Mick Ransome kick your ass with his cheezy late 80s cowboy boots. Brings back fond memories of rushing out to buy it in 88 only to discover it was crap. Redeemed themselves in 89 with the great "Breakdown Dead ahead" EP.

From: Tommy Date: June 20, 2002 at 9:29
C.J. Jadghar went on to play in The Wildhearts, a criminally ignored band from South Shields. Motorhead meets Cheap Trick in Brian Wilson's garage.

From: sovain1 Date: July 9, 2002 at 7:55
i will buy your cds if you want to sell them!!!also does anybody have there second cd (NO TIME FOR NURSERY RHYMES)???E-MAIL ME SOOVAIN1@AOL.COM

From: David Date: August 19, 2002 at 1:58
Is this really that bad?

From: David Date: August 19, 2002 at 1:59
I would love a copy!

From: Kim Date: August 19, 2002 at 3:44
Hhate to admit a mistake. But I made some comments on this cd. This was NOT the one I bought, and my comments doesnt count. The one I have is called NO TIME FOR NURSERY RHYMES: Its Not that bad, but every time they got the music going, they fuck it up with some lousy vocals, and bad chorus. Reminds me of Faster Pussycat and L.A Guns. Mystery Train is good, but then this annoying chorus shows up. The production suxx.

From: TIM Date: August 19, 2002 at 11:37
It's really bad David.

From: TIM Date: August 19, 2002 at 11:39
I've got a copy with $1.00 written in marker across the front. I might send it to you. I found it in a pawn shop and some idiot wrote across the front. I guess they were trying to deter me from buying such a horrible album.

From: soovain1 Date: September 3, 2002 at 5:28
i dont understand why you people talk so much shit about this band,like i said before i will buy your cds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: JIFFI ENEMY Date: September 3, 2002 at 23:16

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: December 22, 2002 at 17:16
Hay Tim, what copy do you have with a doller writtin on it? Is it "Bleeding Hearts N' Tattoo Marks" or "No Time For Nursery Rhymes" or "Break Down Dead Ahead"? Is the dollar on the front-cove or on the jewel case? Does it have any scratches? If its in good condition and the dollar is on the jewel case than how's about a trade? ((((A.K.A.))) Ring a Bell?

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: December 22, 2002 at 17:25
Sorry Tim I guess it was The Ripper I was thinkin' about, that wanted A.K.A.. But still answer my questions and maybe I can make an offer on your "Tattooed Love Boys" CD!!!

From: TheRipper Date: December 22, 2002 at 22:14
That was me Drag-In-Bones, you never got a hold of me... I have a ton to offer... Check the AKA comments for contacts.

From: TIM Date: December 22, 2002 at 22:56
Drag-in-Bones, it's the "Needlemarks" disc and the ink is actually on the front insert. Sorry I didn't see you post earlier but I already offered it to David.

From: TIM Date: December 22, 2002 at 23:05
If I remember correctly, PJ has one on his main catalog. I'm sure you know this but just in case: www.kissmydisc.com

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: December 23, 2002 at 5:09
Thanks anyway Tim, not a prob!!! I Found someone that has it in my home town, she said she would just give me her CD. She has two.

From: Tc Date: December 27, 2002 at 10:24
I like this album - it has a kind of sleazy charm about it. Simple party anthems - thats what I like - this cd is full of them! I didn`t particularly like the follow up album. Don`t expect too much but a great cd to liven a party up! Tc

From: mixaplic Date: December 31, 2002 at 6:10
Even though there's nothing original about this band it still has a get up and have fun vibe. If you like the 1st Poison cd you will probably like this cd. (which I do) Nothing special track wise but still not that bad. I got it from a friend for free but would have paid $3-5 for it. (1-10)6. No Time For Nursery Rhymes cd is more of the same with a little better production and a couple catchy tunes (1-10) 6 1/2

From: Date: February 12, 2003 at 22:17
fuckers good album

From: Kristian Date: February 26, 2003 at 11:32
I don't think it's that bad at all.

From: koogles Date: April 18, 2003 at 19:05
I could shit all over this CD but why bother? It's already full of crap.

From: FRATELLO Date: September 2, 2003 at 7:06
I don't understand why you all guys talk shit 'bout this CD??? It isn't that bad. Similiar to Alleycat Scratch style, goot tunes, great party CD.

From: Dean Date: October 27, 2003 at 23:24
This cd kinda grew on me- i remember ads for it but never found it until a couple of years ago. I thought it sucked at first but tunes like "Why waltz When you can rock n roll" ended up getting stuck in my head. Very sleazy vibe-like a sleazier less talented Faster Pussycat. Would like to hear the follow up but i had a hard enough time finding this one.

From: spudley Date: February 13, 2004 at 9:34
if ya want a copy e-mail me at spudley.spudley@virgin.net tattooed love boys bleeding hearts and needle marks :0)

From: FRATELLO Date: March 4, 2004 at 5:12
Hi, Spudley! Do you have the next one from this guys?

From: Geoff Date: August 27, 2004 at 3:11
These guys are so bad it is laughable. Man the British had some unfortunate acts - these guys, Wrathchild and IMO Quireboys, but people might like them. I think Tattoed Love Boys are just a mess of a band and I find no valid comparison to Poison, Alleycat Scratch or Faster Pussycat as noted on this page. There just aren't the songs here to ever get this album started. IMO, just a really, really poor band and album, like the next one...

From: tomcat Date: August 28, 2004 at 10:09
not my thing either...although i cranked up "saturday nite" alot because it has a cool guitarrif..the best glamthing that ever came from England is Tigertailz, or wait....)SOHO ROSES of course...

From: mattboy71 Date: October 1, 2004 at 22:52
Horrible singer - probably the worst I have ever heard in the 80's, but this CD should only be noted for Jagdhar's catchy riffs...he wisely joined The Wildhearts soon after this release. www.thewildhearts.com

From: Nick C Date: January 13, 2005 at 17:32
I bought this for 1 or so at a boot sale some years back and I was robbed blind! They were better liggers and posers than they were a band. At least the Babysitters were funny! These guys were tragic. I went to see Aerosmith on the Pump tour at Hammy O and a couple of them were in the foyer with a few hangers on trying desperately to get recognised hahahaha!

From: zoomanthree Date: December 15, 2008 at 8:54
poor recorded sound, but nice album, very glam. love it

From: hair metal again Date: October 21, 2014 at 1:57
excellent debut by TATTOOED LOVE BOYS back in 88 ,will satisfy all glamsters around!the sound,the lyrics,the attitude and the looks are great and despite the poor production and the not so strong vocals ,the result is very very good and unique in a strange way!imagine a mix of early MOTLEY CRUE and ALMIGHTY or HORSE LONDON!highlights are "sweet little ragamuffin","stikky stuff","stale lipstick" and "chase the ace"!really impressed
