At the dawn of the Eighties the first volume arrived as a fiery statement from the heart of the British punk scene.
Back in the day, the glorious early punk energy was still alive and in the meantime transforming through a wave of new bands coming up with fresh ideas and attitudes.
Thanks to a great selection of both originators and newcomers, the whole explosive energy that was at the core of punk movement is perfectly captured throughout these three landmark compilations.
An incredible roster of bands such as Vice Squad, Blitz, Chaos UK, Anti Nowhere League, Vibrators, Angelic Upstarts… all original British punk acts except the San Francisco based Dead Kennedys represented here with their seminal hit ”Kill the Poor”.
This is fierce, loud and raw music caught in the midst of transition between punk rock and its next ”hardcore” evolution. All three volumes feature brand new tracklists including bonus tracks not available in the first editions.
