Teenage Kicks
This one brought back some memories...
Watching Top of the Pops with one of my cousins who was obsessed by the Boomtown Rats. We had to stay very quiet as she sang along to "I don't like Mondays". The video featured scary "Village of the Damned "type kids and Geldof wearing big, white framed sunglasses. This was pre Saint Bob days so Geldof at this stage was just a scruffy post punk lead singer with attitude and a weird voice.
"Too much too young"; the first single I ever bought. My dad had a very dim view of the Specials. I think it was because they looked like one of those rough little gangs that you'd see hanging around the local shopping centre.
"Town like Malice" is one of those songs that contains more hooks than an entire top 20's worth of records. One of those records that, when heard on a pub jukebox now, sends men of a certain age and background into a sort of reverie. "Ah, where we ever so young?"
I remember going on a school holiday abroad in France and hating every minute of it. The only thing that made that week bearable was a copy of "Kings of the Wild frontier" that one of my mates brought with him. We'd beg the teachers to play it on the coach's cassette player and when the driver stuck it on, there'd be a big cheer. Adam Ant was cool back then and "Antmusic" his coolest song ever.
Everyone knows Jilted John's song, but probably won't recognise it by the title alone. But once he starts to whinge that "Gordon is a moron" you'll get an irresistible urge to join in. Play this in your car and you will be shouting along to John's tale of woe. Go on. You know you want to.
Secret Affair & The Lambrettas were part of the sound track of my mod phase.

there are sooo many late 70s/early 80s compilations that there needs to be something different about any new ones to make them worth investing your hard earned cash in, especially a full price double album. All the tracks here are lifted from between 1977 and 1984 with most from 79 & 80 and, while you would find it hard to quibble with most of the inclusions, are there any you couldn't find on 101 other (possibly cheaper) compilations? Its a mish mash of styles with more emphasis on punk and anything that includes XTC is always worth considering, although Senses.. again?? The inclusion of New Rose is an inspired choice, as is the rarely compiled Secret Affair's Time for Action, although quite why the Joboxers are there is anyone's guess. These apart its one of those "name a band and you can probably guess what song it is" type collections. 4 stars for the quality of stuff here, lose 1 star for lack of imagination!!!

Now the thing about this compilation is that if you were around when these tracks were new you probably have them all on vinyl 7" and you cant bear to hear them without the crackle. It just isnt right. However if you are a 17 year old who thinks they just invented sex, drugs, rock and roll, bought a few green day and killer records then this is about ideal. It has all the anthems on it and its a blooming good party album. Me? Well i'm 36 and i was slightly too young to be at the concerts but young enough to say "i was there" Reward by Teardrop explodes was my first ever single (that said i also bought toyah wilcox and all the fame LP's so i wasnt that cool really) and now i do the cleaning and the ironing and run at the gym listening to the pain of teen anxt on my cd walkman. Its cool but if you are a purist then stick to record fairs and buy the originals to play on your reconditioned Linn Sondek with LP12 cartridge and Nad speakers because you cant kid me you are still sitting in in bus shelters listening to a transistor radio.

Anyone who grew up in the 70's should have a copy of this album. Will bring back all the memories from that time.
