Soul Jazz Records’ new 10th anniversary edition of their long-out-of-print ‘Punk 45: There Is No Such Thing As Society’.

This album is fully remastered and relicensed, and includes five new tracks, from 23 Skidoo, Notsensibles, Pretty Boy Floyd, The Astronauts and The Impossible Dreamers. The album is a collection of seminal, classic, obscure and rare punk and post-punk singles from the likes of The Mekons, Johnny Moped, The Killjoys, The Rings and many more which all chart the rise of independent music and DIY culture that exploded in the wake of punk and during the years of Britain under Margaret Thatcher.

The album comes complete with text, biographies on each of the bands, exclusive photos and original record artwork, and is newly available as a special edition heavy gatefold sleeve edition complete with full sleevenotes.
