Mostly alternative and new wave styles in this compilation of San Francisco artists.

Track-by-track:

1. Holly Stanton - "Temptation": Female-fronted AOR/new wave.
2. Kingsnakes - "She's Not Nice": 1960s style folk rock.
3. Barry Beam - "Wacs in Slacks": Devo-esque new wave.
4. Roy Loney & The Phantom Movers - "Different Kind": New wavey slow burner.
5. New Romans - "She Doesn't Play (With Yo-Yo's)": Power pop with Farfisa organ.
6. The Impostors - "Sounds on the Street": Uptempo power pop.
7. Readymades - "Runnin' Too Fast": Catchy new wave/power pop with saxophone.
8. Holly Stanton - "Black is Black": The second song by Holly Stanton is a cover of the Los Bravos tune. This one goes into a more hard rock direction.
9. Eye Protection - "Take Her Where the Boys Are": Mid-tempo new wave/power pop. This was Andy Prieboy's band before he joined Wall of Voodoo.
10. Fun Addicts - "You Don't Care": Female-fronted hard rock with organ.
11. Timmy Spence - "Brand New Dance": Synth-pop.
12. Pushups - "Play On": New wave/power pop. The lead singer oddly sounds like Paul McCartney, especially during the chorus.
