Being bored back in the 70’s, could turn you into a punk rock hero. Or not? Anyway, after six series of well documented british punk we come to the seventh volume. Safety pins on and down the road then.

First we’ve got The Singles with their single “Adolf Hitler/Mercy“, a nice starter of urban british punk. In The Gym happily follow to kick your heads off and then Katz with a satisfying combo of six songs.

Being a band from Portishead, does not necessarily means that you’ll be named Portishead, to the contary Chaos UK is fine. The hardcore veterans offer their single “Summer of Hate/I Wanna Be Left Alone” in the name of alive and pacey punk. Then The Hobbs arrive for a couple of rounds at the local but only when The What and The Vendettas are in town.

The compilation closes with Skidmarx, a nervous quartet from the east, and the straight punk by North Londoners System X.

Rather than searching around for lost and forgotten singles of this particular bristish punk period, the Bored Teenagers series puts a disordered era in order and a nostalgic smile in your face.
