VARIOUS ARTISTS: This Is Peterborough Goes Forth: CD

Wow Peterborough! The hotbed of English music! Who knew that this many people even lived in the town famous for being the home of the Destructors (third tier UK82 band). Remember when CDs came out and there were loads of sampler and regional compilations that were utter shit? Ah, the spirit lives on! As with any compilation focusing on a microscopic scene, it’s a totally mixed bag from wanna-be commercial emo, shit streetpunk to pop punk. I’m stoked people are repping their scene. I just don’t need to know about it and I’m pretty sure not one reader of this fine rag does, either.
