EXPLOITED: Punk’s Not Dead: CD

Mar 19, 2002

A repress of this infamous band’s debut album, with a bunch of bonus tracks from assorted singles. 90% of their classic material can be found here, including the title track, “Blown to Bits,” “Sex & Violence,” “Cop Cars,” “Mucky Pup,” “Fuck the Mods,” and “Dead Cities,” to name a few. The fact that it’s been fourteen years since I last saw this band and nearly nineteen since I first heard this release are two very bitter pills for me to swallow, though their music still makes me feel like kicking someone’s teeth in. God, I feel fucking old and I haven’t even reached “middle age” yet.
