Suzi Quatro


After experimenting with a funkier sound on her previous album, "Your Mama Won't Like Me", Aggro-Phobia returned to the straight ahead rock sound of Suzi's first two albums.

Suzi’s fourth album, Aggro-Phobia, was recorded in the Autumn of 1976 and released in January 1977. It’s the only Quatro album to be produced by Suzi’s mentor, Mickie Most.

Aggro-Phobia is a classic that deserves recognition for its unique sound, with its powerful lyrics, infectious melodies, and hard-hitting beats.
