Released by Templecombe in 2006.
Not only one of the greatest t-shirts ever worn to decorate the cover but also an album with a whole lot of substance and a whole lot of good songs. Like in most cases when reviewing comps i must say it has its good and bad sides (guess comps cant deliver to everybodys taste and leave everybody happy at the same time. Even though both Deadline and Stomper 98 are two of the most overrated bands in my oppinion the Templecombe also adds some of my favourite bands like Retaliator and On file to the songlist.
Retaliator opens the album good with what is probably the best song on the whole comp. The lyrics take up the delicate subject of St. Georges Day and questions the lack of nationalistic pride in Britain today, a subject thats even more current today than in 2006 probably.
Other great bands/songs that i had never heard of before buying the album back in 2009 are Bulldogg Samurai and the Indonesian band No mans land that deliver a great and somewhat drunkensounding singalong ballad.
Most US bands sound great on the comp but the US gold goes to Counterattack (a band that needs to make a reuion).
