Greater Manchester Punk 1977-81: Limited Edition Blue Vinyl LP
In the spirit of the DIY ethos of the punk era, most were recorded in small studios and released in limited pressings and have become a must have for the discerning punk collector. On it's initial release In 2015. GMP was a compilation of the week on Lauren Lavern's BBC6 music show.
Ranging from The Still’s crunchy power-pop to the Class Of ’77-esque nihilism of Mike Joyce’s pre-Smiths combo The Hoax, the music contained within is always solid, though sometimes predictable. Pure Product’s angular, XTC-ish Rejection and V2’s genuinely edgy Nothing To Do have, however, retained the ability to genuinely startle. ( Record Collector )
