D.I.Y.: Teenage Kicks: UK Pop (1976-79)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Punk helped restore a nervy, stripped-down sensibility to rock that was quickly filtered through a number of more pop-oriented bands that were labeled as new wave. Not surprisingly, many of these new wavers were holdovers from pub rock, whose unpretentious, anti-star attitude foreshadowed punk rock. These pub rockers were devoted to the three-minute pop single, but they also had a biting wit and kinetic energy that separated them from conventional pop
ock bands, and the best of this first wave of new wavers are collected on the dynamic D.I.Y.: Teenage Kicks: UK Pop 1976-79. Beginning with Nick Lowe's explosive "So It Goes," the...

Punk helped restore a nervy, stripped-down sensibility to rock that was quickly filtered through a number of more pop-oriented bands that were labeled as new wave. Not surprisingly, many of these new wavers were holdovers from pub rock, whose unpretentious, anti-star attitude foreshadowed punk rock. These pub rockers were devoted to the three-minute pop single, but they also had a biting wit and kinetic energy that separated them from conventional pop
ock bands, and the best of this first wave of new wavers are collected on the dynamic D.I.Y.: Teenage Kicks: UK Pop 1976-79. Beginning with Nick Lowe's explosive "So It Goes," the collection runs through a series of classic singles from Eddie & the Hot Rods "Do Anything You Wanna Do", Wreckless Eric "Whole Wide World", the Motors "Dancing the Night Away", Tom Robinson Band "2-4-6-8 Motorway", Squeeze "Take Me, I'm Yours", the Only Ones "Another Girl, Another Planet", XTC "This Is Pop?", the Rezillos "Top of the Pops", and the Undertones "Teenage Kicks", throwing in a number of forgotten gems along the way. Although the collection doesn't feature Elvis Costello due to licensing restrictions, he isn't missed -- in fact, the collection plays better without him, since focusing on overlooked artists demonstrates what an amazing era new wave was for smart, catchy guitar pop. Few various-artist collections capture their subject as well, or as infectiously, as Teenage Kicks does.
