I just had to get this when I saw it on CD, I know it’s old stuff but so what? It’s a great comp, with a foreword by Eugene himself. Classic pop songs like Monsterpussy, Rory Rides Me Raw, Dying For It and of course the originals of Molly’s Lips and Son Of A Gun, as covered by some band from Seattle. Listening to this (along with Singles Going Steady) makes me realise what’s missing from most contemporary guitar pop/rock. Feeling, meaning, a sense of humour and grace. I better stop now before someone mentions Bogshed again. Buy this album if you’ve ever pogoed in your bedroom. Don’t buy it if you don’t like songs about rudies and pubies.
