V/A – The Bastards Can’t Dance: A Tribute To Leatherface CD

ImageV/A – The Bastards Can’t Dance: A Tribute To Leatherface CD (Snuffy Smile, 2004):  I was surprised when I couldn’t find this excellent compilation disc anywhere on the Internet and knew I had to put it up.  Do you like LEATHERFACE?  I do.  I think they’re one of the best punk bands ever and, luckily for us, these 12 Japanese bands like them too.  What we get is a picture of the mid-2000’s Japanese punk scene covering LEATHERFACE classics.  The mighty SNUFFY SMILE curates the comp beautifully and it’s sequenced really well.  Whether you’re looking for the dead-on accuracy of ZERO FAST, the perfectly sloppy THE BECAUSE, the female fronted PEAR OF THE WEST, or the piano based 1,000 TRAVELS OF JAWAHARLAL, this compilation’s got it.  Every band does their song justice in their own way and the selections, though leaning heavily towards songs from Mush (and who could blame them), are well chosen.  As far as tribute comps go, this is probably my favorite one I’ve ever heard.
