The Beat Generation & The Angry Young Men DELUXE Edition

The Beat Generation & The Angry Young Men DELUXE Edition



In 1984, before Eddy Piller started Acid Jazz Records, he released a number of 'mod revival' bands on an independent record label especially created for the purpose, that upstart label was the now infamous, Well Suspect Records and this compilation was the first release featuring Directions, Small Hours and Long Tall Shorty. This reissued deluxe edition revisits and freshens the original; losing two tunes but gaining five extra tasty maximum R&B numbers (from the Italian group, The Mads) recorded between 1979 and 82. Best played loud, this compilation has influenced much of the indie-rock and brit-pop elite of the current generation of 'angry young men'....and women.
