Comments:

This is a compilation of live, demos, oddities and out of print tracks, and some tracks by the reconstructed band, The Scavengers. Penelope Houston's punk band! Not to be missed by anyone who likes this type of music. Loud, angry, fast, but fun—this is a taste of punk rock in its heyday and as it was best—live and loud. (Neile)
