„A Tribute to Punk“-Review

Review auf folkworld.de:
Various Artists „A Tribute to Punk“
Jump Up, 2018


This two CD set from Germany features classic punk covers compiled by Lucha Amada. The style is geared toward Latin dance music, which may make classic punks skeptical. However like the ska-punk movement, there is a natural fit and there are some highly original songs here. Unsurprisingly, there is an awful lot of Clash here, but that is understandable with the way the Clash broke down a lot of world music barriers back in their day. And this compilation has excellent liner notes where the bands often discuss their involvement with punk music and how they share the same rebellious spirit in breaking down barriers and such. There were some incredible highlights such as the surprisingly rocking Stooges classic ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ by Aleko Lem. There is plenty of Ramones and some fine takes on the Dead Kennedys, the Pogues, and Motorhead. Great songs, but get the CD release for the liner notes, art work and extra songs.
