4.0 out of 5 stars Not forgotten, 10 Feb 2012
For Damned collectors only, but a great CD when you're in the mood to play yourself some Damned, but you don't want to put on the same old regular studio CD's again. Emphasis on Caps material and Strawberries era stuff. Worth its money alone for "Torture me" and "Some girls are ugly", and a great version of Billy Bad Breaks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alright..., 13 Jan 2012
This review is from: Horehound (Audio CD)
... very much so. Although not all of the songs are wonderful or entertaining, but the good ones (60 Feet Tall, Cut like a Buffalo, Pony, are so great that it deserves four stars. Great singing by Kate, manic drumming by Mr. White, and eardrum-splitting guitar playing by Dean Fertita. Alright than, buy the thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic!!!, 13 Jan 2012
This review is from: Another Kind of Blues (Audio CD)
One of the most enjoyable albums of the so called 2nd wave of Punkrock bands. We loved Charlie, Paul, Nicky and Pete, even visiting them in London, and drinking their beer in the dressing room! Uncomplicated, honest, raw and fun. Their first album has had a Stranglehold me ever since it came out in '79. Later for dark music and problematic lyrics!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure class, 13 Jan 2012
This review is from: v2 (Audio CD)
Better than their first: V2 has a more original sound, not the run of the mill pubrock-turned-punk songs that comprised most of Pure Mania. This album has an edge, something mysterious and idiosyncratic. Enough already with the difficult words, just enjoy the pop of Automatic Lover, The weird rhythm of Flying Duck Theory, the Drive of Nazi Baby, etc. Buy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy listening, 16 Mar 2011
One of the greatest collections of easy listening music one can buy. One of my favourite guilty pleasures! A lot of well-known names, like Bert Kaempfert, Burt Bacharach, Martin Denny and Lalo Schifrin giving you that ultimate 60's feeling. In a way this is so Punk, more Punk than a new Green Day album, because it's so utterly, completely cheesy, un-PC and WRONG! Still: when you listen more carefully one discovers that the arrangements on most of the songs are awesome. Lot's of layers in rhythm, a wide choice of instruments, wonderful melodies that worm their way into your brain. Somehow this music seems to have been around us for ever, but I always discover new things after repeated listening. A must buy for every discerning music lover!

4.0 out of 5 stars The universal spirit of Punkrock, 4 Mar 2011
Great album. In The Netherlands, where I live, we never saw any of these bands perform, but hearing their energy, their rawness, the spirit and their attitude reminds me of numerous Dutch bands I saw in Amsterdam at the time. Listening to this collection conjures up images of one-chord wonders performing in squats, beer soaked floors, pogoing and slamdancing, and getting chased by squares on mopeds who hated us Punks. I guess the spirit was universal: if Jon Savage had visited Amsterdam at the time he could have made a similar collection of Dutch bands. Nevertheless: worth buying, even though not all songs are worth listening to twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic punk from Ye Olde Punk Daze!!!!, 6 Nov 2006
A long time favourite of mine, is Johnny Moped. I never saw the man or his unruly bunch of merrymen playing live back in ye olde Punk Days, but everything I have ever heard from them since '77 has found a place in my heart. Great stuff, funny, raw, angry, weird punk/pub/psychedelic rock. Great riffs, weird but great lyrics, excellent band. Very English, very excentric, CLASSIC!!! And hey, it features Captain Sensible!

4.0 out of 5 stars My youth, 10 July 2006
This review is from: Nouvell Vague (Audio CD)
Very funny stuff this, but done with taste, precision and style. To those who knew the songs back in ye olde punk days it may come over as a joke, or as a pishtake, but it shows that these French artists know their classics![...]
