i was a punk before you was a punk!

For those of you still hanging in there, we know it is hard to accept, but it is only natural that after such a long time that the punk scene changes and then before you know it, all of a sudden you find yourself belonging to another generation of punk fans. Suddenly you realize that most of the current punks hanging around the train station drinking cheap beer were not even born yet when you used to hang around the train station drinking cheap beer. How depressing! But brightening up our mood a bit comes the realization that many of the bands you used to like are actually still around, and still putting out good music. With this in mind, we decided on doing a sampler with mostly new tracks from all our old favorites. Old fart punks ourselves with a record label, we over the years ended up in the lucky position of actually working with a lot of our old heroes, some of them famous now, others less so, so a sampler like this seemed like the logical next step. Yes, we know the title is grammatically incorrect! It is a joke on being in school, as in "old school", as in "old school punk". Get it now?

Back to MT Undertainment mainpage

After literally years of planning and delays, we finally offer here what we consider to be THE definitive old school sampler. Lots of unreleased tracks, practically a list of every important old school punk band there is. Seventy seven minutes long, with a thick booklet not with info on the bands (what more could one say about the Damned here than what has already been said a thousand times before!), but with anecdotes about growing up in Germany and the US and trying to be a punk, against the wishes of your dad, your school, the local police and yes, even against the wishes of the guy that checks your tickets on the streetcar! Oh yeah, the CD itself is a cool picture disc!
