Eric Reanimator presents episode number 2 in the Love That Album Compilation Series of podcasts, and it is hugely entertaining and informative.
This time he discusses two albums. The first is Rip It Up and Start Again, a compilation covering the post punk era of artists such as Cabaret Voltaire and The Human League, following in the wake of the initial wave of punk . He points out convincingly it’s subsequent influence on goth and indie rock.
Stagediving to the Oldies from 1995 covers second wave LA Punk covers bands like The Circle Jerks, The Vandals and Agent Orange. Eric feels that the LA punk scene never got its due, and this compilation is going some way to redress that.
