Decent, Priority Records seems to put out decent compilations. This
is no exception. It's too short though! It has some harder to find tunes
like the (Bill &Ted mode on) most excellent (mode off) "Jackie Onassis" by
Human Sexual Response, which features those immortal lines, "I wanna be like
Jackie Onassis/I wanna wear dark sunglasses." Of course one cannot over look
the inclusion of Johnny Rotten's PIL with "This Is Not a Love Song" which I'd
never seen (or thought I would EVER see) on a compilation. "Mickey" though
is the one song that is VERY out of place on this compilation, I don't know
what they were thinking, anyone who likes the Ramones and PIL is going to
despise "Mickey" and vice versa... one only wonders if they're trying to
immitate K-tel compilations with that move!
