V.A. - Raw Records Punk Singles Collection

Raw Records was one of the UK's first ever independent labels, having been formed in 1977 by Lee Wood. Bands such as The Users, Killjoys, Lockjaw and The Unwanted later provided members for the likes of The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, UK Subs and Dexy's Midnight Runners whilst the scarcity of Raw's releases made them highly prized collectors' items. 30 of the label's best tracks feature here alongside a comprehensive discography of one of the most important but vastly underrated indie labels of our time.

Some classic 76 - 77 punk rock on here. The Killjoys, Acme Sewage Co, Unwanted...thanks a bunch.

Seeing the Unwanted reminded me about those other classics, the "Live at The Roxy WC1" and "Farewell to the Roxy" albums it'd be good to hear them again sometime.... ;)
