There is nothing quite like a live recording to emphasize the ferocity of a band’s ability. The release of The Pop Group’s The Boys Whose Head Exploded does just that. It’s a bootleg compilation of live recordings from gigs The Pop Group played in 1980. The label, Freaks R Us, is run by none other than Pop Group’s own Mark Stewart. After switching this on, it is clear that they were a unique force to be reckoned with. This little record is a fun addition to a storied catalogue of music that is not only socially conscious but necessary and still relevantly radical.
