At one time I had all 3 of these CD's, but now I only have one. I bought this box set to remedy my loss, and it was well worth it! For those of you won't don't know about them, Culture Shock was the band Dick Lucas formed immediately after the Sub/Hum/Ans broke up for the first time back in the 80's. Experimenting with different sounds and musical atmosphere's, Culture Shock played an interesting mix of Punk, Ska and Dub music, with Dick's unique vocal delivery and lyrical bent on top of it all. The band gigged around for a few years before calling it quits, putting out some fantastic music along the way, and this collection puts all 3 of their releases together, along with a couple of Demos the band released along the way. The booklet that comes along with this is excellent, with Dick Lucas writing about the history of the band and including some never seen before photos. Although the collection is called Everything, the band's live cassette only releases weren't included in it for whatever reason. Fans of the Sub/Hum/Ans will definitely dig this, and if you see it somewhere check it out. It's available from Alternative Tentacle Records if you're interested. Culture Shock were a cool band, and this box set does them up something proper. Check it out if you're so inclined.
