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.

******** "witty, wonky compilation" Uncut
"rarities and underground gems" Le Monde, France
Top Customer Reviews
Punk 45 vol 2 has some great tunes from bands such as O-Level (Who was Ed Ball who also formed TV Personalities,Teenage Filmstars and The Times), The Shapes with their 92 seconds of "Wots For Lunch Mum?" is a corker and The Killjoys featuring Kevin Rowland before his Dexy Midnight Runners days is pretty cool too.
I didnt know too much about any of these band except whats in the booklet....
Id heard of The Killjoys, Johnny Moped TV Personalities and Swell Maps (and also The Cigarettes who happen to be on Mod compilations).
I love playing this set of compilations even if im not that into the american punk side but they did do a few corkers which i consider punk and not just rock but you cant beat British Punk.....
Great stuff for some unknown pleasures and a few known treasures.
These songs came out when the charts were full of ****:and Dog Meat and this really did kill the hippies

I really enjoy listening to compilations such as this, which bring together many and varied odds and ends from the more obscure corners of punk and new wave. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Punk Snail
