Overview

The U.K.'s premier outpost for punky pop and poppy punk, Damaged Goods released their first label sampler CD in 1998. It's the Cheap Damaged Goods is a 30-track history of the label's effort to bring the world some of the rawest, hookiest garage-inspired music around. The lineup includes some big names like Holly Golightly, whose "Virtually Happy" is taken from her first solo album and starts the disc off with a sultry bang; Thee Headcoats, who are the label's centerpiece group and contribute one of their most scathing tracks, "(We Hate the Fuckin') NME"; the Manic Street Preachers, whose early single "New Art Riot" is included; the always charming Helen Love; the Television Personalities; and the re-formed Revillos. Some of the lesser known bands provide the highlights of the disc: the Budget Girls' silly "Tickle Bee," Lovesick's melancholy punk-pop anthem "Sunflower," Dutronc's pounding cover of Jacques Dutronc's classic "Et Moi, Et Moi, Et Moi," Cukooland's C-86-styled girl-group pastiche "Endless Song," Bristols' supergroovy garage swinger "Questions I Can't Answer," and the unfortunately named the Adventures of Parsley's wonderful "On the Move." The disc presents a highly entertaining picture of a label who always knew exactly what they were on about, a label that released some of the best indie rock on the planet. The proof is in the pudding and the pudding tastes damn good.
