Title: 1977: The Year Punk Broke / Various
Label: Cherry Red
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Three CD set. 1977 - The Year Punk Broke kickstarts a new year-based series of compilations, celebrating the explosion of a new British phenomenon in 1977. This box set follows the success of the compilation Action Time Vision (2016), documenting Punk on indie labels, and 2017's Power Pop/New Wave set Harmony In My Head. Punk's Year Zero was 1976. But very few Punk records were actually released that year. The most significant musical developments happened in 1977, with a burgeoning, self-supporting network of clubs, performers, fanzines, indie labels and distributors creating an unstoppable groundswell that would revolutionize UK music and have an enduring impact on pop culture. 1977: The Year Punk Broke reflects how a thrilling, controversial scene developed over those tumultuous twelve months. Joined by sympathetic but more experienced acts (Deaf School, Graham Parker, Motorhead, etc.), a welter of new, young bands created a sonic explosion, with sub-three minute adrenalin rushes of raw excitement. Many of the year's major breakthrough acts and cult favorites are included, including The Jam, The Damned, The Boomtown Rats, Buzzcocks, The Stranglers, Generation X, Sham 69, The Only Ones, The Rezillos, Ultravox!, 999, X-Ray Spex, ATV, The Boys and The Vibrators. The older guard - variously labelled Pub Rock, New Wave or Art Rock - are represented by Doctors Of Madness, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Deaf School, The Tyla Gang, Graham Parker & The Rumour, The Gorillas, The Count Bishops, Radio Stars, Spider and Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias. Other key names include Motorhead (Lemmy's new venture after splitting with Hawkwind, a metal band loved by punks) and The Heartbreakers, Johnny Thunders' band who recorded in London. Also present are a host of obscure indie Punk 45s and other rarities.
