One of the First releases this year from Captain Oi! is the latest Angelic Upstarts, following on from the success of “The Albums 1979-82” (WAHOYBX353) we present a second box of Angelic Upstarts albums covering 1983 to 1991!
Disc 1 is the Indie Chart hit “Reason Why?” album which now comes with ten bonus tracks. Featured are the singles ‘Woman In Disguise’, ‘Solidarity’ and ‘Not Just A Name’.
The second disc is 1984’s “Last Tango In Moscow” LP which again comes with ten bonus tracks, mainly rare studio demos. Includes the Indie Chart hit single ‘Machine Gun Kelly’.
“Live In Yugoslavia” is Disc 3 and reads like a “Greatest Hits Live” as it includes many of the band’s chart hits such as ‘Teenage Warning’, ‘Never Had Nothing’ and ‘I’m An Upstart’.
Disc 4 is 1985’s “Power Of The Press” album which now comes with the bonus of the highly controversial single ‘Brighton Bomb’.
The fifth disc is another controversial album, “Blood On The Terraces” which incurred the wrath of MP’s and tabloid newspapers when originally released in 1987.
The final disc is the rare 1991 album “Bombed Out” which saw original guitarist Mond reunited with vocalist Mensi for the first time in nearly a decade.
Six discs and 100 tracks all housed in a sturdy clam shell box. The booklet features pictures of all relevant sleeves, liner notes, news clippings and many previously unpublished photos.
Mensi still leads a version of the band to this day and received rave reviews for appearances at this year’s “Rebellion” and “Punk Rock Bowling” festivals.
