  The Ugly Truth about Blackpool Volume 1 - Volume 1 - (1977 - 2005) - UTAB
By Positive Creed - Issue 9 submitted

This companion CD is being given out free with JSNTGM´s ´Blackpool Rox´ fanzine. At a colossal 27 tracks in length, we felt it worthy of a review in its own right. We started things off with a pre-fascist outing from Skrewdriver and roll on into Zyklon B´s ´Manic Depressive´ nicely. So far, so good. This compilation works chronologically, starting off in 1977 and bringing us up to the present day. Some of the early 80´s bands have got a Joy Division/Bauhaus feel to them (Tunnel Vision and Section 25). Of the early years, the standout tracks belong to The Kenneth Turner Set, The Genocides, The Fits (who are magnificent) and of course the fantastic One Way System with ´Jerusalem´. As we move into the nineties, the musical net spreads. A lot of this stuff has an indie feel, with a punk spirit. From the graveyard rock of The Phantom Creeps to the high octane, Uncle Fester, there is enough here for everyone. Chang are intriguing ; Razor Dog, Erase Today and King Mob Echo are all excellent - You are bound to disagree, you will find your own favourites. Watch this space for future compilations. ´The Ugly Truth ….´ Is a fitting testament to its own scene. (SCS) 6/10
