  The Ugly Truth about Blackpool Volume 1 - Volume 1 - (1977 - 2005) - UTAB
By Verbicide - March 2006 submitted

Now here is a fun comp. It highlights some of the more political and truly underground artists of the last twenty odd years with the likes of the Fits, Uncle Fester and the Phantom Creeps, and even Skrewdriver doing a song before they became Nazis. Many of the old recordings, those dating back to the late 70´s and early 80´s, are not of the best quality, but this is probably the first time I have heard them on CD format. The bands, for the most part, have a sort of Damned inspired macabre sound to them, such as Take Lindy Surfing and The Fits. There are also a few Oi inspired bands featured on the comp. The only grievous thing that I found about this comp is that I didn´t ever really learn what the ´Ugly Truth about Blackpool´ was, since there was mo press release or anything given. But I can say if there is anyone still out there who wants to listen to real punk music, back when it was still dirty and fun, then check this out. You may have to turn up the volume all the way on a few songs to actually hear the vocals, but you will be happy that you did. (Jonah Crismore)
