Bits & Pieces

Various Artists

Theologian

Just what the world needs, another “indie” punk collection that retails for spare change and is filled with artists most people with ears have never heard of. I wanted this to be so different, so not that, but Bits & Pieces failed me, except for Pennywise, who seem to lend a hand on just about every compilation CD made involving punk. War Called Peace, Cheater, 98 Mute, F.Y.P., Cigar, and friends fill the spaces on this disc. If you’re fans of theirs, then this is a pretty safe bet for you, but if you’re looking for an introduction to good punk, drop this and run the other way.
