OUTCASTS, THE: Frustration (The Best of 1977-85): LP

As the title implies, this is a “best of” collection of tunes from one of Belfast’s earliest punk bands. Much of their finest work is here—although it is a bit odd that the track for which the album is named is not here—for the punters to pogo to their hearts’ content, including “Justa Nother Teenage Rebel,” “Love Is for Sops,” “You’re a Disease,” and so on. Included are extensive liner notes to keep inquisitive bastards like me happy. If you ain’t got this shit elsewhere, it’s essential listening, natch.
