Week 2 of rock 7″ compilation boxsets – one more week will follow. The Dutch private press punk 7″s of the Punk Elää series continue to impress [try Outo Elämä ‘ANC’, Kasvain ‘Onko Suomi Usattunut?’, or Lapsuuden Loppu ‘Tämän Yön On Tää Kylä Meidän]’, sublime perfection in a much mellower persuasion can be found in The Loft – Why Does The Rain, and the artists in the Ten Big Stiffs boxset demonstrate how Stiff Records lived outside of time [the Desmond Dekker ‘Why Fight?’ and The Legend! ‘Melt The Guns’ tracks are very timely anti-war tracks]. As for ‘time’, going back to the 60s in the Mind Destruction boxset which starts today’s show is super-enjoyable. Sitting in a time of their own are the Creation artists glowing bright in the Creation Artifact 45 boxset.
