VIVE LE ROCK - Concrete Jungle (A Compilation)


It’s about that time. A new issue of Vive Le Rock hit’s the newsstands in a week, so here’s a copy of the Free CD that came with the last issue (#4) Once again it’s got a couple of classic bands (THE SPECIALS and SOCIAL DISTORTION) but like the previous ones it’s a good introduction, to some lesser known acts that you might never have heard of, or might never hear of were it not for their appearance on these compilations. As with previous ones there’s some good and bad but I’ll leave that down to individual taste to decide what’s what and what’s not. It’s a second appearance on one of these compilations for ELECTRIC RIVER, with their Clash influenced Ska Punk Boogie. BUBBLEGUM SCREW and THE HIP PRIESTS turn in a couple of Dolls/Stooges cock in yer pocket sleaze and roll. Then there’s some of blasts of old skool 80’s punk rock from HIFI SPITFIRES, EMERGENCY BITTER and THE SEPTIC PSYCHOS, some punky metal from GENTLEMANS PISTOLS and THE REILLY EXPRESS. There’s some Blues and Soul infused Rock from THE NOVEMBER FIVE and ON TRIAL UK, some weirdness from WHITE LORD JESUS and some sleazy sexiness from THE VULGARETTES. Whatever’s on yer musical plate, I’m pretty sure there’s gonna be something to yer taste on this fine and varied selection. Enjoy and Destroy!
