Naughty Rhythms: The Best of Pub Rock Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Pub rock is the frequently forgotten forefather of punk rock, although on the surface the two genres don't appear to have much in common. Punk rock was about revolution and pub rock was about tradition, at least superficially. But place pub rock in its proper context, and it was nearly as revolutionary as punk. In the early '70s, rock & roll was dominated by heavy metal, art rock, and blues-rock, all genres that required skill. The simple, laid-back three-chord shuffles of pub rock – ranging from straight-ahead rock & roll, to country and blues-rock – didn't require much skill, but it was a working class, do-it-yourself movent that took rock & roll back to its roots, which is essentially what punk rock did.

Whether Neurotica is where Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and The Replacements' Paul Westerberg got the idea that it was cool to take punk rock into poppier territory is still up for debate. But there’s no question that the second album by the brothers McDonald is a toothsome, energetic mashup of guitar crunch and accessible melodic turns that embodied a new sound when it appeared in 1987. With Hawthorne, California, teenagers Jeff on guitar and vocals and Steven on bass out front, they began as The Tourists in 1978, before changing their name to Red Cross a year later. A lawsuit from the actual humanitarian organization forced a name change to Redd Kross which is what appeared on their 1982 debut Born Innocent, recorded before they were even out of high school.

Jackson's contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades…

Tané Cain's self-titled debut album is a perfect example of a release that should have been a big hit, but for whatever reason, did very little commercially. Cain has an impressive voice, and the material – most of it sleek, commercial pop/rock that was co-produced and co-written by Jonathan Cain and has a Pat Benatar-ish quality – is generally excellent. Though Cain denied sounding anything like Benatar, the fact is that she is somewhat Benatar-ish on melodic jewels such as "Crazy Eyes," "Vertigo," and the haunting "My Time to Fly." Nonetheless, Cain is her own person, and she has a smoother, more restrained approach than Benatar – you won't find anything as gritty, metallic, and guitar-crunching as "Hell Is for Children" or "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" on this vinyl LP. Regrettably, Tané Cain went out of print after the singer was dropped by RCA and is unlikely to ever be reissued on CD, but the LP is well worth obtaining if you're able to find a copy.

The Kinks were one of the most influential bands of the British Invasion. Early singles "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night" were brutal, three-chord ravers that paved the way for punk and metal while inspiring peers like the Who. In the mid-'60s, frontman Ray Davies came into his own as a songwriter, developing a wry wit and an eye for social commentary that culminated in a pair of conceptual LPs, The Village Green Preservation Society and Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), that proved enormously influential over the years. By the end of the '70s, the Kinks had refashioned themselves as a hard rock stadium act, resulting in a surge of late-period popularity until they disbanded for good in the mid-'90s.

Cheap Trick may no longer be playing the stadiums that the group's monumental talent surely warrants, but they do have one of the most loyal cult followings in all rock & roll. Thus, when Epic Records decided to release a four-disc box set celebrating the quartet's 20th anniversary with the label, someone there was smart enough to let the band put together a collection for the collectors. Which means 32 of the 64 tracks here are previously unreleased, including many live cover tunes (Beatles, Velvet Underground), demo takes, and a few things only a fan would want. Some hits are here (including "Surrender"), but, as a good example, there's no "He's a Whore," which Cheap Trick probably figured their fans should already own.

This collection features the Dublin band’s six original albums – The Boomtown Rats (1977), A Tonic For The Troops (1978), The Fine Art Of Surfacing (1979), Mondo Bongo (1980), V Deep (1982) and The Fine Art Of Surfacing (1984) – and all come packaged in card wallets. The CDs will feature the bonus material included with previous reissues.
The Boomtown Rats were at their peak in the late 1970s when they notched up two UK number one singles with Rat Trap and I Don’t Like Mondays, but by 1984 their popularity was declining rapidly and Bob Geldolf would subsequently become more famous for Band Aid and Live Aid than as a member of the Boomtown Rats.
Despite this, Geldolf announced earlier this year that the Rats have reformed and they will be touring the UK and Ireland in October and November 2013. This box set and a new ‘best of’ – Back to Boomtown: Classic Rats Hits – are released to coincide with the tour.

MURDERS was one of many mod revival hopefuls in the late 70s/early 80s. (The band split in the mid-80s, but reunited in the 90s and has proceeded apace every since.) As with most acolytes of the JAM, the quartet’s influences were the pre-_Tommy_ WHO, the KINKS and the particularly British transmogrification of American R&B into pop – all of which came naturally to U.K. native Griffiths. In that sense, one supposes, Little Murders were hardly doing anything new or original. But Griffiths clearly loves this kind of power pop, and if he’s no innovator, he’s still quite good as what he does – there’s not a clunker amongst the 26 songs documented on this album + singles compilation. Though it sounds like the band fought against thin production most of the time, it still manages to shine on superlative pop tunes like “This is Your Life,” “Dancing Away,” “Bleeding Heart” and “Things Will Be Different.” Forget looking for pioneers and just revel in the sharp, catchy songs. Fans of the REAL KIDS or the LEN PRICE 3 will seriously dig this.

Great one and only LP by this early 70s band from Calgary Alberta Canada. They were formed from the ashes of a 60s psych band called 'The 49th Parallel, also from Calgary. Danny Lowe-Lead Guitar, Doran Beattie-Vocals, Wayne Morice-Bass & Vocals, Barry Allen-Rhythm Guitar & Vocals, and Bob Ego-Drums. Their music was heavy rock, in the style of BTO or April Wine. The album was recorded in Seattle Washington, where Painter eventually based themselves. After it's release in '73, the band did the bar/club and arena circuit, opening for some pretty big names. A couple years later, "Painter" evolved into 'Hammersmith', who took the same heavy rock formula and released a couple of LPs and achieved some moderate success.
