OLD SKARS AND UPSTARTS 505
The inside quote on this album’s sleeve reads “punk rock is life and death” and no one knows this better than the man behind this 30-track compilation, punk rock stalwart Duane Peters. Turbonegro, Roger Miret and the Disasters, Ducky Boys, and Street Dogs are just some of the bands who’ve allowed Peters to dig out unreleased and rare tracks from the vaults, and the end result is an album to throw on when you feel like throwing down a few beers, a backyard BBQ, or start the party right on a Friday night. Best cover song? Die Hunns’ punkified version of Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love”.
