I love compilation albums – there’s not enough of them these days, so it’s good to see the Afiach Collective knocking this one out. I miss those Boobytrap compilations, I miss mix tapes off mates – more compilation albums please! More mix tapes please!
Having said that, we do get blessed with the likes of Northern Star Records, Pumpkin, Righteous Anger wazzing out the compilations, all of which are most welcome.
So I came to this one on the strength of recent reviews of The Stilletoes and it turned out to be quite an eclectic evening with themselves not necessarily the pick of the bunch, even though the celebration of their album release on Ankst brought this all together.
