Blow Your Cool was the third Hoodoo Gurus album from 1987. Paired up with producer Mark Opitz, who had previously worked with AC/DC and INXS, he gave the band a smoother, slicker surface and a cracking, radio-friendly drum sound, as evidenced by the hit single "What's My Scene?". Opitz also weeded out the band's wackier material in favor of mega-hooky pop ("Out That Door" and "Good Times," the latter featuring the Bangles on backing vocals) and straight-ahead rock & roll ("Where Nowhere Is" and "Party Machine"). For As a result, Blow Your Cool! Is the least idiosyncratic album in the Hoodoo Gurus' catalog and doesn't reflect the wit or goofy charm that won them many of their early fans. But it also made them sound like the great rock & roll band they always were. Blow Your Cool has been remastered and pressed on heavyweight white vinyl.
