First album by seminal political power punk trio Newtown Neurotics, ‘Beggars Can Be Choosers’ hit n.6 in the UK indipendent chart in 1983. Formed in 1979 by vocalist and guitarist Steve Drewett, whole socialist-flavoured lyrics – never overbearing – have been grouped with those of Easterhouse, Billy Bragg or the Housemartins, the Neurotics sounded like a synthesis of everything cool in the first wave of punk: Ramones to the Clash to mid-period Undertones, sharp-edged, but still fun-sounding, with great hooks and melodies and socially aware lyrics. Criminally underrated Ramones-influenced political pop-punk. Titles like ‘Living with unemployment’ and ‘Get Up And Fight’ speak for themselves. A must!
