421 A bucket of slugs posting about punks

This was my jam back in college.  I was on a heavy post-punk kick and would put this 3CD comp in the rotation at most of our parties.  One roommate was into Ska, one Rockabilly, one only listened to the Beastie Boys, so my discs helped round that out and make a few casual listeners scratch their heads.   

The name of this mix comes from the Nothing's Going To Happen site, which consistently posts excellent mixes.  I've found many times when I am struggling to find a very specific and very odd track, they usually have posted it somewhere on their site.  For this post punk mix, instead of ripping my own CDs (which I'd have to dig through boxes in my basement for) most of what I wanted was already comped by Slug.  I did add several to what they'd provided, and also found several new gems in their mixes I'd not have come across otherwise.
