VARIOUS ARTISTS: He Put the Bomp! in the Bomp-Greg Shaw: CD

Jan 24, 2008

Incredible compilation of bands paying tribute to the late Shaw, founder of Bomp Records. It starts out with the one-two sucker punch of The Plimsouls doing “Good Times” and The Briefs tackling “She’s Just a Girl on the Block.” Other groups cover The Zeros, The Dead Boys, and Roky Erickson too. Captain Sensible even contributes to Nikki Sudden’s take on “KillCity.” Twenty-three killer songs, this also came with a book and T-shirt in a hundred run package. But at least get this CD to find out about Bomp Records and the man that made it so fucking cool.
