Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: A poxy but popular compilation culled (mainly) from the scores of demos Riot City received. With the notable expectations of Abrasive Wheels and Resistance 77, this only goes to demonstrate how poor a lot of British punk was in 1982, and time has not really made it sound any better. Mostly it's intensely second-rate shouty bands who later issued singles for the label, but even the notoriously unpicky label boss Simon Edwards couldn't be convinced into issuing singles by T.D.A., Organized Chaos, Havoc (who are actually quite amusing) or Lunatic Fringe. Dead Katss and Chaotik Dischord were both Vice Squad spin-offs.

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL, JULY 1982: Cuts by UK groups. A few previously-released tracks, most not. Pretty good collection. Favorites are by HAVOC and CHAOTIC [sic] D.
