..a very rough sound to them even before punk was called punk, we have rough cuts by devo, the waitresses, the bizzros and jane air and the belvedeeres to name just a few

What you are basically buying are the most popular A sides from the classic Clone Records (of Akron) catalog with a couple of tracks from the Devo "Mechanical Man" demos bootleg thrown in for good measure. Several of these bands were snapped up by major labels in the 70s after Devo signed to Warner Brothers as Akron was the hot rock scene for a few months in 78. Not really punk in the hardcore punk tradition, but mostly art damaged rock from Kent State 20 somethings (at the time) raised on Zappa and Beefheart
