Fake Punk can be some of the best punk! The late 70’s had a bevy of great punk/power pop one off bands. Often secretly and not so secretly fronted by members of famous/semi-famous rock groups. The Pack, Pork Dukes, The Greedies, The Monks (UK) top amongst them but one of the longest and loudest lauded is F.U.2.. Raw, snotty, and jammed up with hooks and attitude. The group was essentially the 60’s garage/freakbeat band Downliners Sect under an assumed Punk name and recorded over a case of Vodka. What came out is some of the realest fake punk you’ll ever here. THEEXPLODINGHEARTS would later cover their classic “Sniffin’ Glue” which many incorrectly think was a Hearts original. The album has been bootlegged many times since its release over 30 years ago and is finally being treated to a legitimate reissue sourced from the original tapes! Limited run so grab it while you can.
