- Jon Savage Presents Black Hole - Californian Punk 1977-80 by Various (The Germs, The Dils, The Zeros etc.)
Ok, I'm running real short on reviewing time so I'm gonna have to make this a quickie. Respected author and all round good guy helps compile this awesome selection of Californian punk bands dating back to the golden era of PUNK FUCKING ROCK. Jon savage is the author of the excellent 'England's Dreaming' so he knows his stuff and has compiled a (pretty much) definitive collection to represent the era. Practically everything on here is amazing!! You got The Weirdos, The Zeros, Germs, Dead Kennedys, The Screamers (whose track 'Peer Pressure' is an early example of where puck rock was heading), The Avengers and my personal favourites The Dils (who contribute 'The Sound Of Rain' and 'I Hate The Rich', the latter being one of my favourite punk songs of all time) along with a bunch of others. You get 26 tracks for your money's worth and everything on here sounds as fresh as the day it was recorded... on the cheap... on drugs... in an alleyway somewhere. Californian punk is a winner. Now, I wonder if the compilation is named after Charles Burns classic comic book? Who knows... buy this, it's worth it for The Dils tracks alone.
