Such is the poor quality of some accounts of the original scene that you could be forgiven for thinking Punk and New Wave were purely a 1970’s British musical phenomena. Yet that couldn’t be further from the truth as this compilation illustrates by bringing together key US acts from the 70’s and influential Garage, Beat and Pub Rock nuggets from both the UK and Stateside that helped fuel the full explosion on these shores in 1977. Never less than primal it makes for a challenging listen.
1) Features 32 classic and rare tracks which helped soundtrack the 70’s Punk and New Wave explosion.
2) Includes UK and US Punk legends and boasts highly influential 60’s UK and US Beat and Garage Punk classics from the likes of The Creation and The Seeds.
