V/A, Attack of The Killer B’s, Vol.1 (1983)
I saw this in the “rare & interesting” section of the store – and spotted Marshaw Crenshaw at the top – You’re My Favourite Waste of Time is a favourite. Then the list of names that carried it on: Pretenders, The Blasters, Ramones, John Hiatt, Roxy Music, Peter Gabriel, The Time, Talking Heads, Gang of Four, T-Bone Burnett and Laurie Anderson. Well I love all of those acts – to some degree or another. And if that isn’t the epitome of a “something for everyone”-style mix then what is? Have given it a whirl, pretty great actually. Shock The Monkey in German. Good good.
Sample Track: In The Sticks (Pretenders)
