It’s always fun to see a piece of our mutual history surface in an unexpected location. Viz. this video compilation from “stev1963hit,” an old-school British audiophile who included an illustrated version of “Prison Walls” from San Diego punk pioneers the Injections in a series of YouTube posts dubbed “Anarchy in the U.K.”
“Prison Walls” is the first in a trio of songs in this edition, along with “Cold Eyes” by the Reactors and “No Passion” by the Vice Creems.
In his YouTube liner notes, stev1963hit writes, “Three of my most favourite tunes discovered in ’09 have been by California’s shouty punk strummers,The Injections … a band Steve Malkmus almost certainly heard in his youth i reckon! ‘Cold Eyes’ ( also released in 1980 ) is its polar opposite,whilst ‘No Passion’ is straight ahead ‘I Hate Your Guts’ smoking English Punk Rock from the ‘Aylesbury Goes Flaccid’ compilation 1978.”
Listen to your brothers’ calls!
