Angelic Upstarts: The Albums 1983-91, 6CD Clamshell Boxset

Angelic Upstarts: The Albums 1983-91, 6CD Clamshell Boxset

25th January 2019 0 By John Deaux

The Angelic Upstarts are enjoying a bit of a resurgence thanks to the previously released box set that contained albums from 1979-1982.

Again, thanks to Captain Oi, this 6 CD collection has been lovingly put together with not just the roiginal albums, 5 of them have been expanded upon with an abundance of bonus tracks. Including the controversial tracks Brighton Bomb and Blood On The Terraces.

The album, Live In Yugoslavia  (what was it about Yugoslavia that punk bands recorded albums there?) is basically a greatest hits record but LIVE. Bugger me backwards is it great. it’s just incendiary and a complete oral assault. Infact the whole box set is pure aural sex

Just buy it (even if it just for the bonus tracks, you won’t be disappointed.
