Product Description

Product Description

Soul Jazz Records' new Punk 45 album charts the rise of underground punk and post-punk in the UK from 1977-81.

Punk 45: There is No Such Thing As Society. Get A Job, Get A Car, Get A Bed, Get Drunk! Underground Punk and Post Punk in the UK 1977-81 is the second volume in this series, released following on from Soul Jazz Records' recent massive deluxe 400-page Punk 45 cover art book, edited and compiled by Jon Savage (author of the seminal book on punk, 'England's Dreaming') and Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records).

While the first album in this series, Punk 45: Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself!, focused on underground punk in America, this album concentrates on punk and post-punk in Britain in the years 1977-81.

This new Punk 45 album features a collection of seminal, classic, obscure and rare punk and post-punk singles from the likes of The Art Attacks, The Mekons, TV Personalities, Swell Maps, and many more - charting the rise of independent music and Do-It-Yourself culture that exploded in Britain in the wake of punk.

The album comes complete with text, biographies on each of the bands, exclusive photos and original record artwork.

The album is released on CD with outsize large booklet and thick slipcase and is also available as a limited-edition super-loud, super-heavy double gatefold-sleeve vinyl edition, complete with full sleeve-notes. These Punk 45 releases are also the first that Soul Jazz Records are making available as worldwide digital releases.

"wide and smart collection of the fascinating scene ... A companion piece to a substantial and enlightening first volume" Sydney Morning Herald

**** "diamonds in the rough …. eccentric moments of self-expression, fuelled by rebelliousness, irreverence and irritation" The Times

******** "witty, wonky compilation" Uncut

"rarities and underground gems" Le Monde, France

Product Description

VOLUME TWO : Frantic 24-track Soul Jazz compilation of underground UK punk from 1977 to 1981 by Television Personalities, Swell Maps, Josef K, The Mekons, The Nerves, Johnny Moped, Disturbed and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed to cure your mid-life crisis 8 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With the Sex Pistols et al in the vanguard and the limelight, across the country bands sprung up to peddle their own brand of anger and disillusionment, and here is a collection of some of the best. Anyone with memories of the time will see a couple of familiar names, such as the Mekons and the Killjoys, but there are lesser known gems,too. Some clever lyrics that you wouldn't get away with in any other genre, and the opening lines of 'Mucky pup' should be listened to after lunch, not before. Nice accompanying booklet that gives a real feel for the period. Go on, annoy the neighbours...........
