VARIOUS ARTISTS: Get Outta Philly: CD

A mighty fine compilation of punk in all its permutations from, drugged-out surf rock to ‘60s trash to borderline hardcore to Dolls-influenced rock. Given that this is subtitled “Rock’n’Roll from the City of Brotherly Love,” I was wholly expecting bad bar rock, but this is quite possibly the most consistently good scene overview I’ve heard since the Let’s Get Rid of L.A. comp. Featured bands include Thee Minks, The Bad News Bats, Bad Penny, The Chance, Toothless George and his One Man Band, The Blow Goes, The Party Wreckers, Econocaste, The Misteriosos, Dragon City and the Jukebox Zeros. This is gonna get worn out pretty quick.
