It’s not easy curating a definitive selection of the best sub-underground, late 70s UK 45s and comp tracks from the heyday of do-it-yourself record making, but I’ve put together a start. I’ve culled my newest 8Tracks mix, “SUB-UNDERGROUND UK DIY” from multiple sources: the “Instant Pop Classics” comps, various internet downloads, “Messthetics” and my own collection. Just like the compilation I posted yesterday of female-fronted riot grrl/garage punk, it’s available right now to listen to on computers, smartphones and tablets. 

Outside of the fairly-well-known (such as it is) DIY pioneers like The Desperate Bicycles and Animals & Men, most acts on here are ultra-obscure and maybe only lasted for one 45 or a couple of compilation tracks, sometimes only on cassette. 23 tracks in all. Most given to that tinny, experimental, slipshod and faraway sound that characterizes the best of the best of this posthumously-defined genre.

Come listen to "SUB-UNDERGROUND UK DIY" here.

  1. DESPERATE BICYCLES – Smokescreen
  2. ANIMALS & MEN – Don’t Misbehave In The New Age
  3. MIDNIGHT CIRCUS – The Hedonist Jive
  4. I JOG & THE TRACKSUITS – Redbox

  6. BEYOND THE IMPLODE – Lassitude

  10. BONA DISH – Mutation
  11. DESPERATE BICYCLES – The Medium Was Tedium
  12. ANOREXIA – I’m a Square
  13. DANNY & THE DRESSMAKERS – Don’t Make Another Bass Guitar Mr. Rickenbacker
  14. THE PETTICOATS – Normal
  15. REFLECTIONS – 4 Countries
  16. SCRITTI POLITTI – Is & Ought The Western World
  17. SUBVERSE – Chance Romance
  18. TRONICS – Shark Fucks

I ordered the excellent “Singles – But They’re Not Really Singles, I Just Sent Them to the Screen and Said They Were Singles” CD by Mark Wynn and got it in the mail this week, along with this personal letter from Mr. Wynn himself.

You may have enjoyed his track “Rip Off The Fall” on Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #81, perhaps. There’s more where that came from.

I believe the Lee Marvin reference is with regard to “Point Blank”, the excellent 1967 film that has several of its key scenes in San Francisco, where I live.
