More Info:

After being unavailable for years this is a very Limited Edition repress on CLOCKWORK ORANGE vinyl of theGreater Manchester Punk Vol 2 : Now We Are Heroes 1978-82 compilation.More rare and previously unreleased punk / post punk gems from the cellars of Greater Manchester. This compilation delves into the archives and focuses on the lesser well known bands of the time and shows the various styles of punk recorded between 1978-82. Some were recorded in studios and some recorded on a portable four track. None of these bands reached the status of bands like The Buzzcocks, Joy Division and The Fall but were an integral part of the Manchester music scene of this period. 'It was a great time to be in a band in Manchester and something of that joy, as well as the obligatory angst and artiness, comes through here. Relive then those heady days-daysinfused with the DIY ethic and the allure of limitless possibilities'. (Mark Radcliffe)
