There Is No Such Thing As Society

There Is No Such Thing As Society


Spike that hair up because we have some great news for all of you deep-cuts punk enthusiasts out there. As you may recall, last month Soul Jazz Records released a killer compilation album titled Punk 45: Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! that arrived concurrent with a fantastic 400-page book, Punk 45 – The Singles Cover Art Of Punk 1976-80 (which made the cut to our punk books gift tips). Today, the label announced the release of the series’ second volume, Punk 45: There is No Such Thing As Society. Get A Job, Get A Car, Get A Bed, Get Drunk! Underground Punk and Post-Punk in the UK 1977-81, coming out on February 2014.
 
This time, the album covers the rise of underground punk and post-punk in the UK from 1977-81, featuring classic, seminal and obscure singles from bands that emerged in the midst of the British Do It Yourself culture like the Users, the Art Attacks and Swell Maps. For those of you drooling already, I should add that the album comes with some extra attributes like text, biographies on each band, exclusive photos and original record artwork. It’ll be available on deluxe CD and limited-edition vinyl versions. While you wait, get in the mood with the Users’ incredible punk obscurity below.
