Purists could split hairs about some of these selections (was Nick Lowe really a punk?), but in general this is simply top-notch: four CDs’ worth of vintage pogo-party starters by everyone from big guns like the Ramones and the Clash to more-marginal-but-equally-worthy weirdos like Pere Ubu and Magazine. The absence of any Sex Pistols tracks is glaring – that rotten punk John Lydon forbade their licensing – but any compilation that rescues both Television’s ”Little Johnny Jewel” and Eddie and the Hot Rods’ ”Do Anything You Wanna Do” from obscurity deserves a coupla tons of praise. The perfect Christmas gift for your blink-182-loving nephew who thinks Green Day invented this stuff.
