Rose Tattoo: Rose Tattoo/Assault And Battery/Scarred For Life/Southern Stars

Album Review

Australian rockers who had plenty of grunt but not enough staying power.

On the cover of 1982’s Rose Tattoo’s Scarred For Life (6/10), the five members of the band are staring at the camera with looks that seem to ask: “Did you spill my pint?” This, really, is all you need to know regarding the songs that comprise the Sydney group’s first four albums, now reissued.
