Usually the comp’s I talk about are pretty recent; maybe within a month or two, but this one is a bit of a relic. *twinkly music plays* *the screen goes all wavy* The year was 2005: Owen Wilson (wow) and Vince Vaughn were winning our hearts with Wedding Crashers, Richard Pryor was dying, and double-wide trailers around the world were jiggling with the thoughtful melodies of Nickelback and Papa Roach. Also, some guys in Blackpool England were compiling a couple decades worth of punk onto a compilation called The Ugly Truth About Blackpool. The title pretty much speaks for itself doesn’t it? That’s how they talk in England. They put ‘doesn’t it?’ at the end of everything. Like “This Yorkshire pudding tastes a bit off… Oh well, pass the gravy doesn’t it?” Yep, so there are plenty of super solid songs on here, covering all the waves of UK punk. One Way System is legendary, yes, but there are so many other great bands you’ve probably never heard of unless you’re from that area. Razor Dog is my favo. Definitely worth checking out doesn’t it?
