Along with the Sex Pistols, the Damned are definitely one of the most re-packaged bands of first-wave U.K. punk. It seems like every year, there's a new "harvest" of odds and ends Damned compilations, and the 2004 edition went by the title of Punk Generation: Best of Oddities & Versions. Comprised of 19 tracks (which frustratingly includes absolutely no track info), the set consists primarily of live versions -- which appear to have been sourced by a soundboard. And instead of focusing on uncommon tracks, the majority of Punk Generation is of Damned classics, including simply explosive readings of "Stab Your Back," "New Rose," and "Wait for the Blackout" (you can easily picture a group of young punks pogo'ing the night away to these tracks). That said, there is indeed an oddity or two, such as a cover of Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life." Obviously, Punk Generation is aimed at the longtime Damned fanatic, but how many similarly themed compilations is one leather jacketed, mohawked human being expected to buy? ~ Greg Prato
