CD Reviews

Auckland NZ 1979 punk compilation
John L Murphy | Los Angeles | 09/14/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"You can hear the expansion away from the Pistols' big bang into the more diverse Buzzcocks-influenced punk-pop, along with bits of ska, Siouxsie, Undertones, X-Ray Spex, and various Stiff and Rough Trade record acts, on faraway New Zealand in over two dozen cuts. The standout, Frogs by the pre-Tall Dwarfs' Chris Knox-led band Toy Love, is almost epic in its diverse range, even incorporating a bit of the Moonlight Sonata, but the whole collection holds up surprisingly well twenty-five years later."
