V.A. Agit-Prop: The Politics of Punk Volume Two

Back in 1997 Cleopatra Records compiled a heavily Anglo-centric history of punk n' politics that dealt primarily in the years between 1977 and 1983. While far from perfect it's loaded with great tracks:

Disc two

Submission The Sex Pistols
Soldier Soldier Spizz(sic)
(I'm In Love With) Margaret Thatcher The Notsensibles
GLC Menace
CND Red London
Kick Out The Jams MC5
Government Stinks Violators
If The Kids Are United Sham 69
Gun Fury Damned
Glad To Be Gay '94 Tom Robinson
Between The Wars Billy Bragg
Fascist Regime UK Subs
Streets Of London Anti-Nowhere League
Alternative Ulster Stiff Little Fingers
Solidarity Angelic Upstarts
Persons Unknown Poison Girls
Fruit Flies The 3 Johns
Living With Unemployment Newtown Neurotics
No Government Anti Pasti
Sensible It Up Captain Sensible

While I'm away from my main computer for a spell (hence the link for Agit-Prop Vol. 2 being right HERE), I'll still get to read all the COMMENTS, so please give us your take on this series.


  1. There's some good tunes on this compliation, my favourites have to be GLC and Right To Work, but then I am an old git and remember the gigs with a smile

    Anti Past robbed that No Government tune, always used to wind me up

    Thanks for the up tho!

  2. Anti Past? I meant Anti Pasti

  3. Again some nice stuff even if a little Anglo-centric.

  4. thanks commenters - I enjoyed reading your words on my phone as I trudged across the country
