No Spitting!!

OI! - Being the year commonly known as the silver jubilee of punk we should expect to be deluged by compilation albums claiming to sum up the "Golden Era".

So when Teenage kicks landed on my desk you can probably imagine my initial comment but as I started to scan through the track listing a rye smile began to emerge.

Apart from the conspicuous absence of the Sex Pistols (who I believe have tightened the reigns on their catalogue in light of the Golden Jubilee) this album covers every nook and cranny of the late seventies. Just the fact that it starts with The Jam and ends with Spolodgenessabounds should give you some idea of its diversity.

All in all, this album is a refreshing collection of punk classics and a must for any would be pogo'ers.
