  The Ugly Truth about Blackpool Volume 1 - Volume 1 - (1977 - 2005) - UTAB
By Issue Fanzine - Issue 22 submitted

Blackpool - miles of beach, an imposing landmark (the tower) and a very seedy nightlife - thanks to the Stella filled chavs that litter the place. It also has quite a good musical legacy - if this compilation is anything to go by. Covering the last 28 years of the town´s musical heritage in one compilation can´t be easy - probably why this is only volume one. As with any compilation there´s great tracks and absolutely duff ones. The ones that stood out for me were - Skrewdriver - Anti Social - Old school punk - just a really good tune. One Way System - Jerusalem - Uplifting punk track. Shrink - She´s the One - Poppy indie - but so infectious. NeoComa - Alcoholocaust - Just because it rocks - and it reminds me of the man - the legend that is DRUNK MIKE ! WHEY UP THE SPURS There isn´t anything truly awful about this CD - the nicest thing was that it was co-funded by Blackpool Arts Council - wouldn´t it be nice if Basingstoke and Deane were more willing to support live music throughout the year. Instead oif fobbing us off with a one weekend token gesture ? Something to think (and even) write about kiddies.
