ANTI-PASTI: No Government - The Best Of @ 320kbps

Though technically a 2nd/3rd wave punk band, releasing material mostly from 80-83 at a time when most of their peers and tour-mates were either thrash-punk hacks (like The Exploited or GBH) or skinhead Oi bands, Anti-Pasti remained convincingly "old-school" in their approach. Their songs sounded like they were straight out of '77, not too fast, not too hard, just good uptempo British punk rock. This compilation culls many of their finer moments and is a satisfactory 1-disc overview of their career, though bigger fans might want to shell out the dough for both of Anti-Pasti's original albums (both recently re-released by Anagram with bonus tracks). And if this sort of latter-day punk rock is your bag, be sure to pick up Chron-Gen's single disc collection, as it has many of the same qualities as Anti-Pasti.

Tracks:
1. No Government
2. 1980
3. Two Years Too Late
4. Another Dead Soldier
5. Hell (version)
6. Ain't Got Me
7. East To West
8. Burn In Your Own Flames
9. Caution In The Wind
10. Last Train To Nowhere
11. Blind Faith
12. Call The Army (I'm Alive)
13. Night Of The Warcry

15. Now's The Time
16. Brew Your Own
17. Bonus Track
