Label: Nobody Wants Us - Volume 11 • Format: CDr Compilation, Unofficial Release • Country: Finland • Genre: Rock • Style: Punk
A very good LP. Includes the other 2 songs of the Lewd 7" that had been ignored until this LP appeared though they are now available elsewhere World Of Confusion - Yamie Bolo* - Ransom, and both sides of the Skinnies 7".
The Victims tracks are also good, as are the Lowlife tracks these are also available on Smash The State 2 and Anti-Nowhere League great lyrics on that one. Rating: 8. Not essential by any means.
Rating: 6. Mostly average punk from several Italian bands that are some how all related. Includes the Mittageisen 7" Teach Me Tiger - Various - Original Hits - Easy is pretty much the reason I got it, not really wanting to pay several hundred dollars for the actual record.
Rating: 7. Excellent issue which includes completely some tough to find UK records. Since you likely won't find the Anti Social 7" you should probably get this instead. Excellent sleeve notes as well. Put out by the author of the Smash The State Canadian punk discography book published inthese LPs appeared in, and The format is to include most tracks from the 7"s that are featured, an excellent idea since most of the original records Peaceful Valley - Rink Hardin - A taste Of Country & Western now impossible to find.
The third volume is the last of the series. Good, if somewhat over-rated, punk rock. The addition of the unreleased Arson song is a bonus. Nice package with several inserts. Something like 30 copies were made with different covers, otherwise of these are around, more than were made of most of the original records. Overall better records than the first volume. Similar packaging and pressing size as Volume 1. Rating: 9. Several years in the making. Mostly great, with an excellent booklet.
I would have prefered the other Reaction song to the silly spoken word bits at the start and end of Side 1. Very good international compilation. Some duplication with previous compilations but still lots here that hasn't been covered before. The second Yodler Killers track is an instrumental but it's nice to have it included for completeness. Yet another Swedish compilation. Some of the better tracks from here are also on other compilations but there is enough other goodies to make it worth having this.
There is also an LP version with fewer tracks. Absolutely no information about the bands or the songs are provided. Quick, cheap effort. While I really like Swiss punk this record never really grabbed me. The Mother's Ruin 12" is good, the 7" is OK but not essential. Most of the unreleased and live stuff just didn't do much for me. Maybe I just need to listen to it a few more times? Volume 6 the second of 2 discs is a rather new-wavish look at the Texas scene.
The first disc is early 90's Texas alternarock. Volume 6 features all US bands. These seem to feature all the tracks from the 7"s, or at least all the ones that the compiler thought were at all worthwhile.
Includes all the tracks from the 2 excellent Cigarettes 7"s, the Letters 7" and other rarities. If you don't have those 3 records you might want to get this. The other tracks would be a worthwhile bonus. Good liner notes. Overall not as strong as Volume 1 this still contains some nice mod and pop tracks. The Terry Tonik songs are quite good and were actually written 10 years before they were recorded. Very good liner notes as well. Since I know nothing about US mod bands I thought this might be interesting.
I think the UK bands are more interesting after one listen to this. Maybe it needs more listens. It isn't bad, it just didn't really grab my attention. Another really good Swedish compilation.
Some tracks should already be known from other compilations but there's enough other good stuff to make this worth having. These tracks originally appeared on the Last Call 2CD compilation of Vancouver bands and were recorded between All are excellent tracks.
The Furies, fromwere the first Vancouver punk band. The Skulls and Stiffs both feature future D. Nice packaging and insert. Some copies are on blue vinyl. Frombefore the recent Mercury Blues - Alan Jackson - 16 Biggest Hits flood of Mod compilations.
Generally good, as Mod stuff goes. An odds and ends collection of unreleased demo and live tracks. Overall not very exciting. The Jam song is a cover and the sound is complete crap. There is a Volume 1 which I never did get. They must have put all good stuff there, leaving the leftovers for this one.
Feel The Pain - Various - Nobody Wants Us Volume 11: Canadian Punk Rock 1977-1982 is also zero information about the bands, save some newspaper clippings on the back cover.
Rating: 5. From MRR, this is pretty much your standard hardcore compilation. I don't know where all the bands are from since I've probably listened to the LP once and got rid of it after I taped it. Some decent songs but since most and later era hardcore doesn't excite me I can't really get into this. Rating: no rating - if you like hardcore you'd probably like this. An interesting mix of styles varying from fast hardcore to dark, brooding "post-punk". Deliberate international focus and to avoid US and UK bands.
This has now August been reissued on CD. Great LP. One of the earliest of the late 70's punk compilations. Most of the material has since been made available on other compilations, many of these tracks are on the Murder Punk CDs. Still worth picking up though for the tracks that aren't, if you can find it cheaply.
This, and Vol. While there are a number of common tracks there are also several that were not on those Feel The Pain - Various - Nobody Wants Us Volume 11: Canadian Punk Rock 1977-1982 . Of course the songs Feel The Pain - Various - Nobody Wants Us Volume 11: Canadian Punk Rock 1977-1982 pretty much top notch but again there is material I'd rather see available than the Scientists.
To actually read about The Scientists which are on Vol. More like a "best of". Pretty much every song here kicks major ass and if you had to buy just one LP inthis could be it. Even if you have all the songs on the 2 Murder Punk CDs you really should have this.
Rating: 10 if it had the 1st Thought Criminals EP instead of the second it would be an Another excellent LP, with a number of the songs taken from the 3 Aberrant compilation LPs that featured a number of otherwise unreleased punk goodies. While this isn't as good as the previous 2 volumes it is still a really good LP.
Some of the songs have an early hardcore sound to them but in this case that isn't a bad thing. Another of the original group of punk Summer Holiday - Cliff Richard - From A Distance ***** The Event compilations this one has become tough to find. Llygod Ffyrnig you can also likely find elsewhere. The Matt Gimmick tracks are originally Stooges tracks dating from Same band notes as well.
Unless you're a completist you probably don't need this if you have the CD which also has a bunch of extra tracks. Red vinyl. A mostly good collection from a good punk label. It also says Volume 1 but since this came out in and there hasn't yet been a Volume 2, I wouldn't expect one.
