Punk is a loose term for what we have here. While Not Good For Your Health: Punk Nuggets 1972-1984 contains several of the scene’s defining anthems - ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, ‘Blank Generation’ and suchlike - there is as much ‘post-’ and ‘proto-’ as there is ‘punk’ on display. Entries from The Gun Club, Joy Division, Patti Smith, Television and more give Rhino’s twenty-three-track compilation a pleasing sense of variety. The quality of the content is, of course, beyond dispute.
