It’s really important you buy these The Pop Group archival riches. They were and are one of the most vital forces in British music. This latest -wrong- ‘un was compiled from basement tapes recorded during their incendiary performances of late 1979 and 1980, and also includes a bonus DVD featuring film footage shot by legendary director Don Letts (The Clash, The Slits, much more…). The bulk of the salvaged live recordings comprise brawling versions of songs taken from the band’s recently reissued second studio album For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? The collection also features the previously unreleased 73 Shadow Street, and a surprise mutation of the Glaxo Babies’ Shake The Foundation. The accompanying film footage is a short feature that’s been hiding in Don Letts’ punk rock archives for the past 35 years. Filmed by Letts at Alexandra Palace on June 15th1980 at an all day festival that featured the likes of John Cooper Clarke, The Raincoats and The Slits.
