Real high-energy rock’n’roll in its most potent form is best captured live and in the moment. Maximum thrills, minimum frills. In 1977, London’s Warsaw Pakt took that premise one step further, recording their album live, straight through, direct to the cutting lathe.
The blazing urgency of the band’s performance, combined with a set of edgy, memorable songs makes “Needle Time” one of the most exciting releases of the ‘70s punk era. It’s also one of the most neglected.
More than forty years later, “Needle Time” stands as one of the most authentic documents of the lean, visceral sound of London punk rock in its banner year.
