This is a compilation of late 70’s / early 80’s punk and rock from the vaults and archives of independent Bristol based label, Heartbeat Records.
This album has been a very long time coming and follows the release of the hugely successful Avon Calling compilation originally released in 1979.
The album contains an eclectic mix of tracks, some of which wouldn’t be out of place on a mid-70’s rock compilation rather than punk. It’s not quite as lively and energetic as you might have come to expect from modern punk offerings but its an enjoyable listen nonetheless and quite nice to drive to. Won’t have you driving like a lunatic but won’t put you to sleep either.
