Reviews & Opinions

PAUL RIGBY, RECORD COLLECTOR: This collection of previously unreleased recordings, singles and live tracks from London’s Vortex club highlights the best recorded output of this nearly-band. signed to RCA between 1976-77, The Wasps were quickly stung by legal wrangles, but managed to record enough material to make their mark. Singer Jesse Lynn-Dean’s spits out snotty cynicism alongside guitars thrashed to within an inch of their life and a drum kit crushed into dust.

LET'S GET HURT BLOGSPOT: Teenage Treats has gotta be a Top 5 UK punk single, not to mention one that I've lost on eBay several times over the past couple years. Here it is, along with a slew of other top-tier UK punk. This band has always struck me as being far too musically capable to be placed alongside the stereotypical gobb-drenched yobbos that are so prevalent when it comes to this genre/locale. This is a pro fuckin' band with a pro fuckin' sound that make pro fuckin' punk. INTO IT IN A MAJOR WAY.
