  The Ugly Truth about Blackpool Volume 1 - Volume 1 - (1977 - 2005) - UTAB
By Real Art - Webzine submitted

V/A "The Ugly Truth About Blackpool Vol.1" (JSNTGM Records, p.o. box 1025, Blackpool, FY3 OFA, UK; www.jsntgm.com) For a long time I didn´t hold in hands such remarkable compilations! Notwithstanding (and may be even due to this!) that it is a so-called local compilation - this disk can be named "a history of punk-stage of Blackpool" (since 1977 till our days) - I haven´t found anything weak or not worthy on it. The style pluralism of the composer - the chief of JSNTGM Records Andy Higgins cause respect: except for classical punk-rock (which, it is necessary to notice, is not so much on the disk!) the post-punk in its every possible displays, punky indie and even the garage punk (Monomen-like driving The Phantom Creeps) are well submitted. I shall note the tracks most touched me: Razor Dog ("Torched") - driving, fascinating punk with magnificent vocal, The Pink Torpedos ("Time To Be Alone") - terrible, hardly reminding a hybrid of the Meatmen and Dead Kennedys punk-rock. And garage The Phantom Creeps ("Bad Place") already mentioned by me. In the zine "Blackpool Rox II" there is the most detailed story about each band, that also raises an information value of this release. I can´t kept and not to tell, that the song "An-ti-co-cial" by a little known that times Skrewdriver opens the compilation - even great assholes have light stains in their biography...
