Various - The Insane Darrell Wayne's No Disco Album - BOMP! ‎BLP 4006 - 1979

The Insane Darrell Wayne must've held a contest for bands to submit anti-disco songs and picked the best for this comp.There's more than a few duds, and a Bags pseudonym (Sgab From the Planet Zed) that's so-so, and much of the low points the record come from the bands trying to mockingly emulate disco in some way. And much of the high points come from apparent Devo-worship. Case in point: 'Love Train' by Cap'N Crisco & The Disco Ninnies.

Flash Boyancy seem to be doing 'My Sharona' via Devo, with plenty of turd gags in 'Disco Defecation.'

Ground Zero's intentionally undance-able 'Dance With The Machines' is less soothing than the Normal's 'Warm Leatherette' and seems most critical of the disco culture with great lines such as "you say this music's an inferno, but I don't see a fire, I see a floor of slave units, trendy sequined robots programmed by the beat, programmed to dance."

Perhaps the USA's drum-machine led answer to Chris Spedding's 'Pogo Dancing' is Cindy & The Gidget Haters' 'Pogoin's For Me.'

The back of the sleeve explains the record:

"It is so expressed that our distaste for disco music has grown to the point of outward expression and so, being intelligent individuals, we have chosen the vehicle of entertainment to attempt a non-violent approach to convey the concept of "No Disco." The songs on this album were selected as the best from an immense pile of "No Disco" music submitted to KROQ. They are the honest expression of a generation with its own music to make. We make no apologies for any of it - it may be rude, crude, rough, raw, and even bad... but it's better than disco!"

Enrique Y Ana ‎- Las Aventuras De Enrique Y Ana - Hispavox S 60.680 - 1981

The synopsis for this movie sounds interesting. Enrique is a gymnastics teacher and his sister Ana is a student at the same school. Enrique gets laid off and Ana flees with him to the castle of their grandfather. Their grandfather is Professor Osborne, a great scientist trying to stop the evil Baron Von Nekruch from obtaining an artifact that would put the whole world at risk. Based on the little I've seen of the movie, it seems like (and I sure hope) the plan is to defeat evil with a battle of the bands or a talent show. It has some very interesting clips.

But easily the most inserting part of the movie is when little-kid punk air-band called 'Los Punkitos' is announced and they sing 'Caca Culo Pedo Pis' which translates as 'Poop Pee Fart Ass.'

 The song from the LP:

The Cold Crush Brothers - Punk Rock Rap - Tuff City ‎4Z9-03898 - 1983

This rap song opens up with a fellow asking his lady friend to answer the door, both using an poorly imitated British accent. She's terrified by something she calls the 'punk rush,' whatever that means.

Instant Funk - Looks So Fine - Salsoul Records SA 8545 - 1982

The last song on this record is called Punk Rockin' but it certainly isn't. The lyrics seem to describe a dance but I can't see any connection to punk whatsoever.

Graham Preskett ‎- Sunburst - KPM Music KPM 1267 - 1981

Not all library music references to punk are created equal.

Toni Santagata - I Love The Punk (Ai, Lavete Punk) - Carosello CI 20459 - 1978

Toni loves the punk, just not as much as disco.

The Rotten Eggs - Punk Nursery Rhymes - Golden Editions TVNZ-9 - 1981

A fan of 'The Newz' writes about how 'The Rotten Eggs - Punk Nursery Rhymes' came to be:

"I’d been up to Tandem Studios about five years earlier, as a member of ‘The Newz’ fanclub. The band was briefly back from Melbourne and were recording’ Punk nursery rhymes ‘ as ‘The Rotten Eggs’ for Music World. They were making the songs up as they went along. I’d not known you could do that."


Dr. Sadistic And The Silverking Crybabies ‎- Pyramid Punk - Hospital Records 81611 - 1980

Probably the best thing about this record is the phony medical records included in the insert. And probably the worst thing is the music.

Flint And Wozo - 25 Years Of Pop - Music DeWolfe ‎DWS/LP 3466 - 1981

The punk song on this fairly self-explanatory library record is the second time Colin Tucker and John Hyde got punky together for DeWolfe with 'Who Do You Think You Are?'

Wozo - Chartbreakers - Music De Wolfe ‎- DWS/LP 3513 - 1983

Prolific library composer John Hyde is responsible for this record full of pop and rock styles of various eras. Anarchy is the token punk song.

Flint And Wozo / Colin Lloyd Band ‎– Badly Bruised, Slightly Stoned - Music De Wolfe ‎– DWS/LP 3394 - 1978

Colin Tucker and John Hyde teamed for this library record for De Wolfe. The most interesting songs are Punk Rock, Chat Show and Badly Bruised, Slightly Stoned.

Three Souls In My Mind ‎- Fiumos, Somos Y Seremos - Peerless E-16055-0 - 1987

Blues-rock band 'Three Souls In My Mind' did the Intrepidos Punks theme for the biker-punk 1983 film of the same name, but didn't release it on a record until this one came out in 1987.
