V/A – The Voxhall Tracks E.P. 7″


After hearing Klips 1988 and their song Ultimatum I just had to have this comp. What a surprise the rest of the bands were great too but in a different way since Ultimatum is such an obvious  punk hit. Para-Noia: sloppy and rather typical UK punk but good. The Tee Vees: Plows along in a slow maner and may be a track I could’ve done without. The Friction: second to Ultimatum though it’s slow I totally love the vocals and lyrics and it saves the whole track.

    Ha Ha. The Tee Vees track is the standout for me. It takes all kinds, I guess. I love that minimal, repetitive shit. The Friction song is interesting, but I prefer The Maggots’ more arch “2/2/79.” Still, this is an intriguingly diverse, and to me totally unknown, compilation. Thanks for sharing!

    This is such a great copulation, and it’s been on my wantlist for quite a few years by now. The obvious hits to me are Klips 1988 & The Friction (with those super loud vocals), but the other 2 bands are almost equally great.

    Glad to see you posting again Peter, even if it took some nagging to get you going again.
