V.A. - PUNK 45: SICK ON YOU! ONE WAY SPIT! AFTER THE LOVE & BEFORE THE REVOLUTION. PROTO PUNK 1969-77, VOL.3 (2LP)


"Punk 45: Sick on You! One Way Spit! After the Love & Before the Revolution: Proto-Punk 1969-77 is the third volume in this series, following on from the two earlier albums as well as the massive 400-page Punk 45s cover art book published last year. While the first in the series, Punk 45: Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself!, focused on the rise of underground punk in America, and the second album, Punk 45: There is No Such Thing as Society did the same for punk and post-punk in Britain, this album draws upon some of the stripped-down hard garage and post-glam sounds of mainly obscure bands that existed in the early 1970s - that were to prove the template for the forthcoming punk movement. This is a unique and fascinating collection of proto-punk tracks from across the USA - Cleveland's Electric Eels, San Francisco's Crime, Los Angeles' Zolar X, Baltimore's George Brigman and more - as well as from the UK - with Joe Strummer's pre-Clash 101ers, the speed- induced r'n'b of the Count Bishops and others also included. As usual the album comes complete with text, biographies on each of the bands, exclusive photos and original record artwork." (label info) vinyl version comes in gatefold sleeve, with download code
