Hey, come check out my Top Ten of 2011 (so far..) over at THE BIG TAKEOVER! Don't forget to leave a comment there!
Here's a new series (well, the late 1990's, technically), consisting of ten volumes that explore the seedy underbelly of the already seedy underbelly that was British punk rock in the late seventies and early eighties.
Highlights of this volume may (or may not - taste in seedy underbellies varies widely) include "The Car" by Apartment, The Tours' "Language School" and of course the titular song, "Teenage Treats" by the Wasps:
* Killer (Killers, 1978, from only LP [Killer])
* Idle Rich (Razar, 1978, from 2.7")
* On Me (Bears, 1979, from 2.7")
* Teenage Treats (Wasps, 1977, from 1.7")
* Language School (Tours, 1979, from 1.7")
* The Car (Apartment, 1980, from only 7")
* Starship 22 (Innocent Vicars, 1980, from Class Of 81 compilation LP)
* Bye Byes Ain't Nice (Telescope, 1977, from only 7"?)
* The Russians Are Coming (AD 1984, 1979, from only 7")
* Man From Uncle (Moskow, 1978, from only 7"?)
* Wooden Gangsters (Vibrant Thigh, 1979, from A Manchester Collection compilation LP)
* B52G (Tea Set, 1978, from 1.7")
