AllMusic Review by

BGO, one the United Kingdom's premier reissue labels which always releases two-fers, places two of Ian Matthews' '80s dates on a single disc. 1980s Spot of Interference and 1983's Shook. Matthews may be best known as a pop folkie, but these two titles reveal him to be purely under the sway of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours (Spot Of Interference) and synth-driven new wave and Gary Numan (Shook). Neither are strong as albums and together, to be brutally honest, they are simply unbearable.
