No Thanks! The '70s Punk Rebellion

No Thanks! The '70s Punk Rebellion


1 New & Used Starting at $72.12


Diehards can usually find something to complain about in any compilation that claims to be a definitive look at a genre or time, but even the prickliest stickler would have a hard time casting stones at this encyclopedic punk primer. Yes, the Sex Pistols are conspicuously absent -- a fact the producers make plain in the liner notes -- but the 100-song set is otherwise exhaustive beyond the wildest dreams of punk addicts. Roughly chronological, the four-disc set touches on releases that preceded what most folks think of as the original punk explosion (notably Pere Ubu's "Final Solution" and Television's "Little Johnny Jewel," both of which date back to 1975) and gives plenty of play to such less-mainstream New York pioneers as the Dictators, the Heartbreakers, and Mink DeVille alongside early cuts from the Ramones and Blondie. Brit pioneers like Eddie & the Hot Rods, the Stranglers, and the Damned are represented by classic cuts as well. Disc 2 delves more deeply into the catalogs of those bands, while peppering its repertoire with embryonic offerings from more experimental acts like Magazine (represented by "Shot by Both Sides"), Wire ("Mannequin"), and the Fall ("Bingo Master"). The quality doesn't tail off on the admittedly more disjointed third disc, which flits from the sugary pop-punk of the Undertones' timeless anthem "Teenage Kicks" to the nihilistic raving of the Germs' "Lexicon Devil" and Fear's "I Love Livin in the City." The set's fourth and final disc maintains that whiplash-inducing pace, taking in neo-oi offerings from Sham 69, free-form freakouts from the Pop Group and the Slits, and formative recordings from future legends like the Cramps (represented by the ultra-early "Human Fly") and the Cure ("Boys Don't Cry"). The box is rounded out by a thick, photo-packed booklet with exhaustive song-by-song liner notes and snappy essays, making it a must-have for the punk rocker inside us all.

No Thanks! The '70s Punk Rebellion 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Absolutely worth every penny, this look at the punk movement was put together with such obvious love and knowledge of the subject that even the absense of the Sex Pistols doesn't distract from the overall excellence of this product. Highly recommended.
JohnQ More than 1 year ago
This box set does have you asking yourself at times what is and isn't Punk, but it's a pretty good effort (I know of none better at the moment) and it has a lot of great cuts. You might want to fill it out by buying a couple of other classic Punk albums (namely London Calling and a good Pistol's collection) but on the whole this box set is well worth the price.
