United States of Punk

 
Watching footage of English punks pogoing up and down to "Anarchy in the U.K." reminds one more of a dress-up birthday game for kids than the faster and louder American punk. This brings me to "Faster and Louder" by the Dictators. Even Devo's "Mongoloid" is heavier than anything on Never Mind The Bullocks.

Overview

Watching footage of English punks pogoing up and down to "Anarchy in the U.K." reminds one more of a dress-up birthday game for kids than the faster and louder American punk. This brings me to "Faster and Louder" by the Dictators. Even Devo's "Mongoloid" is heavier than anything on Never Mind The Bullocks. (But, is Devo punk?) Suicide's chestnut "Rocket USA" is also here, but those guitar-and-programmed-beats groups are more seminal for industrial and no-wave than punk. Whereas the Pistols-led punk movement of England has a "hate-love" relationship with pop music, American punk is largely a subculture of '70s rock. This collection also includes demo versions of "Judy is a Punk" (Ramones), "Mongoloid," "Might He I.D." (DMZ), and live tracks from New York Dolls ("Personality Crisis"), Johnny Thunders ("Chinese Rocks"), Flipper ("Ha Ha Ha"), and Bad Brains ("Pay to Cum"). Also here are Richard Hell & the Voidoids, Real Kids, Weirdos, Zeros, Dead Kennedys, and Misfits.
