Following on from the hugely successful chart-busting Teenage Kicks album released earlier this year (over 150k copies sold!), comes Going Underground - Teenage Kicks 2. The deluxe 2-CD set, released by Sanctuary TV (a label of Sanctuary Records) on November 7th, 2005, includes 40 classic tracks from the glory days of punk, new wave and 2-Tone - one of pop music's most exciting periods.
With a blaster of an opener from The Jam 'Going Underground', to classics from The Police, Madness, The Ramones, XTC, Sex Pistols and Thin Lizzy, this set really does read like the who's who of the era.
With 4 #1s, and 26 Top 10 hits, this really defines the Punk / Post-Punk era, which has proved so influential on today's acts like Franz Ferdinand, Green Day, Bloc Party and Kaiser Chiefs. It's perfect as a stand-alone purchase or ideal as a companion to Teenage Kicks.
Raiding the EMI, Universal and Sanctuary vaults, every single tune is an instant sing-a-long classic; the album is sure to satisfy music lovers who have a passion for great music.
