Various Artists - Messthetics # 1: UK '78-81 "D.I.Y." - Bands R-to-Si



I think I did it. I found the holy grail of post-punk compilations. As the Trash Box was to garage and psychedelic rock, Messthetics is to D.I.Y. punk and post-punk. This will be the first of many posts about these fantastic comps. The first volume is a 1 hour and 15 minute long tour de force that shows you exactly whats to come in the other 17 volumes. A barrage of D.I.Y. madness that will keep you enthralled from beginning to end. If you like post-punk this is ESSENTIAL listening.

We're desperate and insane
Ambassadors of our cause
We don't care if we die
In courts of wars
