💣Sloth's 70s PUNK COMP🧻

Hello Sput-Isolaters, GAME TIME!!!!!!! Rec me 70s PUNK. Winner gets to name my "Real name" the one that comes up when I rate an album. Rules Below...
1The Clash
London Calling


1) Each user is allowed to recommend a maximum of 3 albums.
2Ramones
Rocket to Russia


2) The album had to be released in the decade of the 70s, before 1/1/1980.
3Sex Pistols
Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols


3) Albums by the first 5 bands listed here are excluded, namely; The Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Germs, and The Saints. The idea is for me to hear some new, old stuff.
4Germs
(GI)


4) Each album will be rated out of 10, according to my personal taste.
5The Saints
(I'm) Stranded


5) Any album with less than (edited) 25 ratings on Sputnik, will receive a bonus 0.5.
6The Clash
The Clash (US version)


6) The winner gets to name the sloth, and I will keep whatever they decide, for 1 year, no matter how ludicrous or terrible it is. The name can not be racist, sexist, or derogatory to any groups, other than that, you can call me what you want.

This is classic British Punk. A great variety of tracks, from garage, punk, art punk, minimalist post-punk sounding tracks. This album is superior to The Sex Pistols, like a New England IPA, is superior to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Although PBR is more popular, it lacks the complexity of a NEIPA, a bit like this album shits all over Never Mind The Bollocks....

A great garage-rock/punk album. i feel like this was an excellent debut, but they had a lot more to learn and display on future records. This album sounds a like a young band having fun and playing generic punk, where with later albums, they will come into their own and add the more goth feels.

This is one of the great post-punk albums of all time, it's punky and funky, the bass and jangly guitars stand out here. Vocals are great, and the political, social commentary via their lyrics help make this a classic. Gang of Four have influenced so many bands that followed, but one stands out, Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This is some crisp post-punk, with a splash of art-punk. There are rock, jazz, and experimental elements within the songs, adding excitement and allowing for repetitive listens. So many little riffs, catchy hooks, and unforgettable moments within the album. It is easy to see why Marquee Moon influenced so many new wave, post rock and alternate rock bands for the past 4 decades. Outstanding album.

A great album, that no doubt influenced a lot of post-punk and post-punk revival. I never really clicked with this, and it is probably the album on this list I have heard the most. I just get fatigued, and bored, there is a lot happening on the album, vocal styles is constantly changing, but musically it is a to slow.

This is fast, noisy, raw, under-produced Punk Rock, and I love it, well most of the songs are. There are a couple of slower more artsy/ experimental tracks bordering on post-punk/Psych/art-punk, that are great too. All in all an exciting album that keeps on giving. Well worth repeated listens.

After a few listens, this album still confuses the fuck out of me. It's minimalist synth punk, or no wave, which I am not to familiar with. It's atmospheric buzzing, and Alan Vega's vocals are captivating and demanding a closer listen. For 1977, this album feels ahead of it's time, a lot of the instrumentation could be used as background for a The Weeknd song, or an 80s Atari console game. And then there is Frankie Teardrop, which sounds just like Get Schwifty from Rick and Morty, until....... just listen and you will see. Mike Patton would be proud.

Fuck, this is an instant classic, why did they wait so long to release it? I hope it has nothing to do with racism. It's got elements of prog rock, funk, garage rock, and some great catchy punk vibes. Love this album so much! Drumming is outstanding and guitar work is excellent.

Another classic gem of an album. This is straight up Young, Loud, Snotty rock'n'roll, or the precursor to punk rock. Dead Boys would have been incredible to see back in the day. Sonic Reducer is one of the all time great punk tracks. Guitars and guitar solos on this album are excellent, and the bass and drum adds urgency and rhythmic drive, but it is the raw, dirty, snotty vocals and lyrics that make this punk as fuck.

Early Pop Punk, catchy punk tunes mixed with experimental longer free jams. I prefer the second half of the album, where the experimentation really comes to the front, instrumentally the second half is a lot of fun and it feels like the band were unshackled from the pop punk on the first half.

More dirty loud rock'n'roll, prelude to punk rock. This album is fun, in your face and pure pleasure. A little bit glam, New York Dolls are doing just enough to differentiate from the Rolling Stones, and create their own unique sound, and influencing punk to come.

This album is certainly different then the rest on the list. It is more noise rock/punk, experimental psychedelic garage punk. I think this require multiple listens, at loud volume, and perhaps with LSD, to really appreciate it. A couple of tracks sound like Tom Waits.

Sloth's Rating: 8. I spent a bit of time with this album last year, and I enjoyed it a lot. A mix of Post Punk and Art Punk, although musically it is simplistic, and obvious they are not masters of their instruments, they are willing to put that aside and just have fun, exploring what can be done, and creating some catchy and experimental tunes in the process. Their version of Lola, is great.

This could be the punkest album I have heard recorded before 1975. Shame it didn't get released for years.
Another raw as fuck, punky garage rock'n'roll album. Lots of tremendous guitar work on this, solos galore, but where id the bass? Vocals are awesome and punk to the max, lyrics are repetitive, but lets the instruments stand out. This is awesome, a little better production and it would be a classic, the songs are strong, and the talent is there.
