Remember when Punk Rock was this thriving, interesting, eclectic mishmash of music, where Elvis Costello was considered Punk and things weren't quite so rigid and formatted? Yeah, I'm old too. Anyways, one day, back in the early 80's, 3 of the bands on here, Agent Orange, CH3, and Unit 3 With Venus, played a gig @ Hollywood's Legendary Den of Debauchery, the Whisky A Go Go, and while this release isn't a live recording of that night's event, what it is is a collection of songs from the bands that played, presumably put together to show the diversity in talent on the stage that night, or possibly put together just because Posh Boy was bored... heh. Pajama Party by Unit 3 With Venus starts things off, and it's not the version that appeared on the Rodney On The ROQ III compilation. I don't know what version of Indian Summer by CH3 is on here, as I never much cared for that song, but it might be the version from the BYO Something To Believe In compilation, and then you got 3 tunes from Agent Orange, which I believe are demos of Bored Of You, America, and El Dorado, from the way they sound. Then you have as bonus material a song from a band called The Little Girls called The Earthquake Song that sounds like it came from the soundtrack from Valley Girl. Posh Boy himself supplies another bonus track called Woman (The Provider), a very trippy Kerouac rant/observation, and the last song on here is by Baby Buddha, a cover of Your Cheatin' Heart, which was quite possibly the worst song on the Posh Hits, Vol. 1 compilation. Interesting release here, and a cool Polaroid snapshot of what was going on in L.A. during the early 80's. Good stuff.
