V.A. Teenage Treats Vol. Five (1977-1982)


If you enjoy this batch of Teenage Treats thank Roberto for the awe-inspiring scans BUT keep in mind that ANY HELP AT ALL in finding artwork (front and/or back) for volumes 6-10 would be greatly appreciated.


Here's a new series (well, the late 1990's, really and even then...), 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 rawer, punkier volume may (or may not - taste in seedy underbellies varies widely) might include: Satyr, Johnnie & The Lubes and The Surprises:




...and maybe the Bleach Boys too:




* Problem In The City (Satyr, 1979, from only 7")
* Isn't It (Devil's Hole Gang, 1978, from only 7")
* Terror In The Parking Lot (Johnnie & The Lubes, 1980, from only 7" [split EP with The Executives])
* Politics (Tone Deaf & The Idiots, 1979, from only 7" (flexi))
* Glandular Angela (Exits, 1978, from 2.7")
* Emily (Morris & The Minors, 1979, from only 7")
* Distance (Exhibit A, 1980, from 2.7")
* She's So Rare (IQ Zero, 1980, from 2.7")
* Pessimest's Paradise (Delusion, 1979, from only 7")
* Metro Police (The Cause, 1979, from only 7")
* You've Got Nothing (Bleach Boys, 1978, from only 7")
* Little Sir Echo (Surprises, 1978, from only 7")

  4. I'm really enjoying this series jeffen! This was my era of induction into the unrestrained world of punk/alt music. Freed from the isolation of mainstream R&R radio and schools full of Ted Nugent, Led Zeppelin and other mind numbing band worship... It brings back some of the best moments of my life when I hear these bands. I've started compiling my own version of Seattle, Vancouver, Portland and Pacific NW bands in general. I still have many of the original 7" from that time. If turns out good I'll send you a copy if you want. Perhaps as an added plus to this great volume of artist. Thanks so much to you and those who have contributed to the series...

  13. Little Sir Echo! A golden oldie that the Bonzos still do live. Never imagined there was a punk version. Your blog continues to raise the silliest smiles. Cheers.

    I see other than that great write-up on the inestimable Punk77 that there's no web presence for thiingle. If it's okay with you I'll post the whole thing.

    P.S. Any chance of a scan of the front and back cover? I've got a good rip but the from cover scan is a bit small.
