I got this CD from Knox when the White Trash Debutantes played support for The Vibrators at Safari Sam.s in Hollywood, California.. The long-lived U.K. punk-rock group performs an extensive selection of covers of some of punk's most significant songs, including the Ramones' "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" the Damned's "New Rose," the Sex Pistols ' "Pretty Vacant," and the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks."


The Vibrators are one of the few surviving punk bands of their era, and their energetic performances of these well-chosen genre classics recall the driving force behind the mid- late 1970s sound and the music's far-reaching influence. With a wide-ranging song selection from bands like the Clash, the Ramones, and the Heartbreakers, this set is a timely reminder of punk rock's musical revolution and its contribution to the evolution of rock & roll. The Vibrators are one of the nicest most down to earth bands that you will ever want to meet.. I highly recommend this CD.
