Assault & Battery
Rose Tattoo’s second studio assault, first released in 1981, remains a classic of Aussie power rock. A UK Top 40 hit, the album’s barrage of songs includes the single release ‘Rock’n’Roll Is King’, belted out by their heavily tattooed and bald headed front man.
Despite his aggressive image, Angry Anderson’s lyrics occasionally reveal a more compassionate message than he’d cared to admit!
This was the Tatts’ last album to feature guitarist Michael Cocks, before being replaced by Robin Riley.
