Various Artists - Punk Rock Disc 7" - Yellow Vinyl

Speedowax (2001)

Ah Speedowax, the great label with enough variants to make you give up record collecting all together. They've been around for a long time and although they have been putting out an awful lot of new records lately, I first fell in love with the label back in the 90's when they were putting out Travis Cut and Broccoli 7"s.

This record here is a relic from the early days. A six band compilation 7". All UK bands I believe. And while I have records by some of these bands (Southport obviously for the Snuff tie in, Fishtake eventually turned into The Take and I have a split 7" with Scarper and another great band called Lithium Joe), others I'm not as familiar with like Luna:Suit and Scuttle. All good tracks, crammed onto 1 disc for maximum punk rockness. Though in a perfect world it would have been cool if the Southport song had been unreleased.

I can't find anything online to share, unfortunately, but just know that in the late 90's and early 2000's, there were still some fantastic little bands kicking around in the UK.
