ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE: The Punk Rock Anthology: 2X CD

Jul 22, 2008

A nice career overview, warts ’n’ all, of this bands lengthy career. Their classics, like “I Hate People” and “We Are the League,” sound just as gloriously virulent as they did when they first hit the streets, the mid-late ‘80s “rock” period is as bad as one would expect, and their return to form is more than welcome. Two discs, the lion’s share fine listening and, best of all, one can hear the original version of “So What,” a song rife with so much piss and vinegar that not even Metallica’s attempts at covering it can diminish its sheer nastiness. A great look at the music of a great band.
