The true origins of 70's punk
on 26 January 2006
I first came across this album via a review in the Metro, it suggested short, sharp rock with attitude and boy does it deliver.
From these bands came the Stooges, The White Stripes, The Ramones and virtually all of the best 70's punk. The focus is on tight tunes, great songs, sung with venom and bite. Broken love, going out, drinking and generally causing mayhem is where we're at here and the effect is first rate.
The accompanying booklet provides a myriad of detail on the bands featured and this in itself provides fascinating reading. But, the key is the music. Stick this on when you've a few friends round, grab a few drinks and watch, the effect will be startling.
An essential purchase.
