InfoCD & Double LP26th January

Soul Jazz Records’ new ‘Punk 45’ album ‘Burn Rubber City, Burn!’ charts the rise of the music scene in the mid-West city of Akron, Ohio, at a time when the city and the rubber industry it was associated with was in deep decline.

Featuring a fantastic collection of Akron groups including Devo, The Bizarros, Rubber City Rebels, Jane Aire, Chi-Pig, The Waitresses and more.

The album follows on from Soul Jazz Records’ earlier ‘Punk 45’ albums about USA and British punk (‘Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself!’ and ‘There Is No Such Thing As Society’) as well as the cover art book ‘Punk 45’.

‘Burn Rubber City, Burn!’ coincides with the release of as a second album about Ohio’s early punk scene, ‘Extermination Nights In The Sixth City’, featuring the music scene of nearby Cleveland.
