The clue is in the sub-title of the record: 'post-garage/ pre-punk'. Umm yeah kind of. It's more like proto-heavy metal/ hard rock to me. It's quite a curiosity with its strange satanic tunes and very lo-fi production. I like a couple of the tracks ok. Jay Walker Effort is quite good, the Astaroth song is hilarious, The Flying Wedge... hmmm... odd. Overall it's pre-heavy metal, not really much punk on here. I tend to buy these type of comps on sight if they're the right price, as I'm always assured of at least a coiuple of interesting tracks. 'Interesting' - that about sums it up. Not one I'll be going back to much but it fills in an odd gap in my collection. Weirdly recorded, badly produced but fairly charming post-Stooges/ MC5 Michigan hard rockers.
