Various Artists

Punk University Vols. 1 & 2
Oglio Records

Another nice pair of punk comps cds, this time from a specialty imprint of Capitol. These offer a mixed bag of British and American punk and a wider chronology - from really early (Ramones) to eighties punk. Could've done without the lesser Iggy Pop tracks, - including the one he whored out to a bourgeois sea cruise line! All in all, a pretty nice mixed bag of early punk music. There's probably nothing here that would turn the heads of most punk collectors, but it is nice to have Suicidal Tendencies best song (maybe only) alongside something by The Toy Dolls, any day.

I think the Punk University motif was an attempt to cash in on the mid-nineties generi-punk resurgence, but thankfully, like a lot of similar comps, doesn't include any Green Day or Offspring, et al.
