Product Description

Product Description

Soul Jazz Records' new 'Punk 45' album charts the rise of underground punk across the United States in the years 1973-1980. The album coincides with the release of Soul Jazz Records' massive new deluxe 400 page 'Punk 45s' 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). The book includes text by Jon Savage, numerous interviews and articles from the likes of Richard Hell, Seymour Stein (Sire Records), Geoff Travis (Rough Trade), and Peter Saville (Factory), as well as exhaustive biographies, band line-ups and more on the many hundreds of bands who feature in the book. Punk 45: Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! The American Nation Destroys Its Young - Underground Punk In The United States Of America' is the first in Soul Jazz Records' 'Punk 45' series of album releases coinciding with the new book and will be followed at the start of next year by 'Punk 45 Vol. 2 Underground Punk In The UK'. The 'Punk 45' album features a collection of seminal, classic, obscure and rare punk and proto-punk 45 singles from the likes of Pere Ubu, The Zeros, The Randoms, Electric Eels, The Pagans, The Deadbeats, The Lewd and many more - a lightning rod journey across the states of America - Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles, Akron, New Orleans, Philadelphia - tracing the rise of punk music in these various towns and cities. The album comes complete with extensive text, biographies on each of the bands, exclusive photos and original record artwork. CD comes with outsize large booklet and thick slipcase.

Format: Audio CD
Punk 45 provides a decent enough (if biased) overview of the American proto-punk scene (& beyond) for the ingénue, but I can't help wondering for how much longer Jon Savage & his retro-glancing ilk can continue clinging onto this particular bandwagon - reissuing the same old tracks & regurgitating the same old anecdotes - especially with as wide-ranging & scattershot a resource as Youtube at one's fingertips?

A great round up of early 70's garage/punk rock which covers all the stuff missed by the more New York biased retrospectives. There are some real gems in here especially the Falming Groovies.
