  The Ugly Truth About Blackpool Volume 2 - Volume 2 - (2000 - 2005) UTAB
By Real Art Magazine Dec 2006 submitted

V/A “The Ugly Truth About Blackpool. Vol.2” (JSNTGM Records; www.jsntgm.com) We continue to study Blackpool’s stage with the help of punk-activist, chief of JSNTGM Records and editor of the “Blackpool Rox II” zine - Andy Higgins. The first collection retrospectively represented its local stage since 1977 till our days, this one allows to look at it’s nowadays condition (almost all tracks are dated 2005 or 2006). I was impressed both by the amount of remarkable groups and bright palette of styles in which they work (in spite of the fact that a half of the collection can be attributed as the punk and derivatives from it, on the disk there are indie (in various variations), post-punk, guitar gothic style, progressive and psychodelia (not speaking about not classified The Sound Of Superstring or Sinister Footwear). It is necessary to note: Fes Parker “My Take Away” (recorded in 1999) - mad, drive grunge; Hit By An Apple “Alien Brains” - 20-second hardcore-perversion; One Way System “It Could be You” - the machine-gun punk. Under this song it is good to rush on any reserved jalopy, scattering police cars and obstacles on the roadside… Sick 56 "Violence" - among my favorites! UK Subs today! Section 25 “Dirty Disco” - gloomy post-punk, in spirit of NDW bands and Joy Division; Outlaw “Get In The Van” - powerful female punk’n’roll. Donnas are in ass! Higgins++ “Cool Britannia Uber Alles” - an excellent example of that it is possible “to recover” a good old song and force it to sound actually. For five thousand young punk bands studying “Anarchy In The UK” or “Nazi Punks Fuck Off” listening to it is necessary! The Streetlight “Trust Me On This One” - maneuvers between the Smiths and the Clash. Sounds unexpectedly healthy! Reporting Emily “One Liability” - punky Sisters Of Mercy with the fucking great vocalist. Good drive, very powerfully and at the same time very sincere. Earthling Society “The Loom” – prog-rock with punk power; Das Hasselhoffs “Rise Of The Idiots” - an unexpected combination of guitar indie with hardcore. Very non-standard and curious! The composer of this compilation Andy Higgins has declared that he plans to release the similar compilations made of bands from other cities. I do not think, that he meant only Britain - contact him if you have what to suggest him.
