Jeez, I just realized that this one’s been in the posting queue for over two years, but then on the other hand, I’ve been away for what feels like two years as well so it might be a good one to get back on track with. Another good reason is that now that I bought a new record player, my scanner decided to die on me! At least my camera still works, so I can post something.
There where quite a lot of punk/ punkish/ related compilations released in Sweden from 1978 and forward, but very few of them were as solid as this one. From the top of my head I can only think of the Bakverk 80 L.P. and the Live pa Musikverket 7″. I like all tracks a lot so it’s hard to pick a winner, even though the Moderns deliver like few others. All bands on this one had other releases as well, but in my opinion Stoodes, 2760 and Chatterbox got their best songs ever on this compilation while the Warheads had better tracks on their E.P.
There is a volume 2 as well, but unfortunately it’s too much junk on that one.
