DIY Teenage Kicks – UK Pop I (1976-79)

DIY Teenage Kicks – UK Pop I (1976-79)
Punk Pop/ Mp3 @ 320

Some amazing timeless gems in this collection of Punk Pop classics.

Having two of my favourite songs of all time – the sublime Another Girl, Another Planet and Teenage Kicks -is a good start! Add in more great stuff from the likes of Squeeze, Nick Lowe, XTC, etc etc, and you’ve got a mighty fucking fine collection!

Punk helped restore a nervy, stripped-down sensibility to rock that was quickly filtered through a number of more pop-oriented bands that were labeled as new wave.

Not surprisingly, many of these new wavers were holdovers from pub rock, whose unpretentious, anti-star attitude foreshadowed punk rock.

These pub rockers were devoted to the three-minute pop single, but they also had a biting wit and kinetic energy that separated them from conventional pop/rock bands, and the best of this first wave of new wavers are collected on the dynamic D.I.Y.: Teenage Kicks: UK Pop (1976-79).

Beginning with Nick Lowe’s explosive “So It Goes,” the collection runs through a series of classic singles from Eddie & the Hot Rods (“Do Anything You Wanna Do”), Wreckless Eric (“Whole Wide World”), the Motors (“Dancing the Night Away”), Tom Robinson Band (“2-4-6-8 Motorway”), Squeeze (“Take Me, I’m Yours”), the Only Ones (“Another Girl, Another Planet”), XTC (“This Is Pop?”), the Rezillos (“Top of the Pops”), and the Undertones (“Teenage Kicks”), throwing in a number of forgotten gems along the way.

Although the collection doesn’t feature Elvis Costello due to licensing restrictions, he isn’t missed – in fact, the collection plays better without him, since focusing on overlooked artists demonstrates what an amazing era new wave was for smart, catchy guitar pop. Few various-artist collections capture their subject as well, or as infectiously, as Teenage Kicks does.
