I was always fascinated by this album because this record was always included in the College Radio Top Ten at the back of Spin Magazine. I always borrow my friend Najib’s Spin and Rolling Stone magazines when we were in college. So I said to myself “What’s the fuzz with this album?” I had Mirror Moves and not very impressed.
They released their best of called All of This and Nothing and totally loved their new song included in that compilation called All That Money Wants. And I thought, this might be their direction in the Book of Days. And I was right.
I love their mixture of guitars and keyboards here, and to think I’m not a fan of keyboards. Anyways, I think you’re gonna love this one.
Generation X came to prominence way after its demise, thanks to one Billy Idol who became a huge star in the 80’s. Also, Tony James’ post-Gen X band Sigue Sigue Sputnik enjoyed some success around that time.
Anyway, this album is a classic thanks (again) to Mr. Idol who churned out some pop punk gems like Ready Steady Go, Kiss Me Deadly, One Hundred Punks, From the Heart. Since this is the remastered version, it includes bonus tracks like their first single Your Generation and Wild Youth and its B-side Wild Dub plus 2 b-sides of Friday’s Angels.
This is a kickass record. And you can’t make a punk compilation with including Ready Steady Go or Kiss Me Deadly.
UK Subs were one of the first wave British punk bands. Formed in 1976, the only main fixture here is the legendary frontman – Charlie Harper. Another Kind of Blues is their debut album and boasts some classic tracks like Stranglehold, CID, I Live in a Car, Tomorrow’s Girls.
UK Subs line-up is like a virtual who’s who in punk. Knox of the Vibrators, Lars Fredricksen of Rancid, and even Flea of RHCP became a member of the UK Subs, playing in the album Mad Cow Fever.
You really, really got to have this if you wanna be called a punk.

Two or three years prior, I saw their first record in the imports bin and was all set to buy it. Then my friend who was with me at that time intervened saying “I heard their first album sucks big time, it’s a disco record!” At first I thought he was just kidding, but he was really insistent. Good thing, Go Girl Crazy CD was also available, so I bought the Dictators instead.
I still haven’t heard of the Ministry’s first record so I can’t say if it’s disco or if it sucks big time just as my friend described it.
Anyway, this one definitely rocks and a must have.
Note: To the Pinoi Punks, please support the band and buy the record. I think it is still available at Fishbone’s Middle Finger store in Cartimar Recto.

First up is Big Drill Car’s compilation of rarities, alternate takes, covers and compilation tracks and 5 new recordings, A Never Ending Endeavor. I have to admit I’m a newbie to this band. I first heard them way after their disbandment. They played pop punk predating your Green Days and your Offsprings. Though their sound is a bit polished for may taste, they still manage to get my attention due to the strength of their songs. Standout tracks include The Other, What You Believe and the title track of their last studio album No Worse for the Wear. Their cover of Celebrated Summer and Buzzcocks’ I Don’t Mind are kick-ass but I can’t understand why Billy Joel’s Big Shot?
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
