Various Artists - Now That's What I Call Music 666
We have praised several releases by Glasgow's Fuzzkill Records on these pages, including records by Deathcats, Poor Things, Fruit Tones, Kill Surrrf, Asian Babes, and The Rosy Crucifixion. And we are happy beyond reason to advise you that all those bands are on Now That's What I Call Music 666, joined by Pinact, Min Diesel, Psychotic Reaction and other bands from the northern UK. The album was assembled to celebrate Fuzzkill's first anniversary, and as a limited edition cassette for Cassette Store Day. The cassettes were snapped up quickly, but the record lives on. This just may be the best collection of punk and garage music you'll hear this year, and Fuzzkll has generously made the digital download available for 'name your price'. So you can get it free. But a few bucks for the bands (and the Bandcamp streaming app) wouldn't kill you, you know. There isn't much more to say other than I sincerely believe that this is an excellent collection of song from exciting young talent. I suggest that you probably will like it more than most of the records for which you paid much, much more.
