“Pop Punk/Punk Pop”
Women in Punk.
12 mind-blowing compilation CDs available for download!
i’ve been listening to the first 3 albums this weekend and i already can’t believe how fucking awesome this project is. seriously influential!
Pretty sure I posted about this before, but here it is again. I play music from this comp on the show like every week. I highly recommend adding it to your library.
This comp has some of my favorite songs by bands I hadn’t heard of until I downloaded it. Go go go!
I need all of these.
I’m a Cliché | X-Ray Spex
Ugh Germ-free Adolescents is just one of the best punk albums ever made.
The Classical | The Fall
I remember hearing that during Pavement’s early days, they would cover this, and Stephen Malkmus would end the song saying, “he hates us, he hates us”, in reference to Mark E. Smith. I always thought that was hilarious.
It’s Not Funny Anymore | Hüsker Dü
“Play what you want to play
Hear what you want to hear
Don’t worry about the result
Or the effect It has on your career”
What’s left to be said about Marquee Moon? It’s just one of the best songs ever written.
“YOUR PHONE’S OFF THE HOOK…
BUT YOU’RE NOT!”
Listened to this album all the way through for the first time today. I’ve heard all of the songs a few times now, but I’ve never really had the time (read: attention span) to sit down and listen to all 70 minutes of it with my undivided attention until now.
So glad I did. This album is ridiculous. A hardcore punk (that also would incorporate jazz, folk, and psychedelic elements) concept album about a boy who runs away from home, briefly joins the army, falls in love (possibly?) only to have his girlfriend die, and then wakes up to find it was all just a dream sounds like it should be a complete failure, but it works surprisingly well.
Also, fun facts about the album: Every song (other than Something I Learned Today and Newest Industry) were recorded on the first take. Also, it took 40 hours to record all of the tracks, the entire album actually only took 85 hours in total to record and produce it, all for only $3,200.
So Tough | The Slits
They say you’re acting like a star
They say not everything’s wonderbar
You want money, girls urgently
Too much, too soon you wait and see
You hang around her ‘cause she’s a good mate
Milkshakes and cherry cheesecake
They want to stop you having kicks
Don’t fuck things up by getting sick… again”
