CD Compilation - KR004
Never mind the rest of Asia, this compilation shows how punk broke in Korea! Fourteen bands varying in style from '77 punk to hardcore to new wave pay tribute to the SEX PISTOLS, that nefarious group that kick started the punk generation and then threw it in your face. While some of the bands featured here give an original take based on their impressions of the SEX PISTOLS unmistakable sound, others offer straightforward covers. Korean scene notables like CRYING NUT, SHORTY CAT and TELEPATHY offer covers of classics like "My Way," "EMI" and "Anarchy in the UK." The PATIENTS some on strong with a classic punk vibe and RUX give a street punk charge while retro-electro group GO GO STAR sounds more like PIL on their contribution. THE GEEKS represent the hardcore tribe and KICKSCOTCH give an awesome estrogen-infused tribute to "God Save The Queen" on their own effort. For SEX PISTOL fans or any old old-school punk rocker, lots of stuff to discover on this one.
