£18.99

Sorry Sold out

Greater Manchester Punk Vol 2 : Now We Are Heroes 1978-82 compilation. More rare and previously unreleased punk / post punk gems from the cellars of Greater Manchester. This compilation delves into the archives and focuses on the lesser well known bands of the time and shows the various styles of punk recorded between 1978-82. Some were recorded in studios and some recorded on a portable four track. None of these bands reached the status of bands like The Buzzcocks, Joy Division and The Fall but were an integral part of the Manchester music scene of this period.

In the spirit of the DIY ethos of the punk era, most were recorded in small studios and released in limited pressings and have become a must have for the discerning punk collector. On it's initial release In 2015. GMP was a compilation of the week on Lauren Lavern's BBC6 music show.

Ranging from The Still’s crunchy power-pop to the Class Of ’77-esque nihilism of Mike Joyce’s pre-Smiths combo The Hoax, the music contained within is always solid, though sometimes predictable. Pure Product’s angular, XTC-ish Rejection and V2’s genuinely edgy Nothing To Do have, however, retained the ability to genuinely startle. ( Record Collector )
