Why were there thousands of good punk bands in the late 70s that unfortunately made it nowhere? They were great, had the right attitude, knew how to rock, played extensively in all the right venues (Roxy, Vortex)... so what went wrong with them? God knows. They left a couple of track in the RAW DEAL compilation and one more in Farewell to the Roxy album. Here in this cd you have all the tracks, including High Rise which was meant to be in the Raw records compilation but did not make it. Detour Records is doing music lovers a huge favour with their "only fit for the bin" collection, which features all of these old time good quality but forgotten punk bands that deserved much, much more than they got. Recovering Acme Sewage Co. is one of the greatest things done for the music scene over the last year.
