The new issue of Uncut went on sale at the end of last week, with a cover story by Peter Watts on The Ramones that celebrates the 40th anniversary of a band of punk misfits from Forest Hills, New York, who revolutionised rock’n’roll, the opening lines of one of whose earliest songs, “Blitzkrieg Bop”, gives its name to this month’s free CD.
Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Features 15 tracks of the best new music and features Mutual Benefit, Karl Smith, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Dum Dum Girls, D Charles Speer & The Helix, Death Vessel, Angel Olsen, Tom Brosseau, Marissa Nadler, Glenn Tilbrook, East India Youth, Chris Eckman, Morgan Delt, Hard Working Americans and Snowbird.
As a taster for the CD, I’ve compiled the following playlist of some of my favourite tracks, which you can hear in their full album versions on our CD>.
Have a good week.
