Sealed. Two CDs.

The seventh in my series of Ace singles comps reaches the years 1977-79. Unlike most compilations from this period, which focus on just one genre - almost always punk - "Symbols Clashing Everywhere", as it's title suggests, contains a mix of different styles and genres co-existing, informing and occasionally clashing: and that's without any funk or high disco. In accordance with all the previous volumes, all of these 46 tracks were released on single - the perfect medium for a fast-moving, incredibly exciting and productive period. Includes tracks by The Damned, Prince Far I, Ultravox, Pere Ubu, Giorgio, Iggy Pop, John Cooper Clarke, Brian Eno, the B-52's, Devo, Buzzcocks, The Undertones, The Normal, The Cramps, Talking Heads, X-Ray Specs, and many others.
