Punk Down Under

Zip City 67

Released on July 7, 2017

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Along with Green Day, The Offspring were there at the start of the USA punk renascence of the early 1990s, and indeed played a central role in the genre going mainstream at that time. Drawing inspiration from the UK movement, and New York's CBGBs scene, both of which had exploded 15 years earlier, the best of new breed breathed fresh air into an otherwise stagnant rock scene. By 1994 Offspring were a decade into their career however, and with two relatively successful albums under their belts, the band defied the stereotype of the "difficult third album" with Smash, released on 8th April that year. Smash was an unprecedented success, reaching the Top 10 in a dozen countries and selling over 16 million copies worldwide, the highest-selling record on an independent label ever. The record also spawned a trio of hit singles - 'Come Out And Play', 'Self Esteem' and 'Gotta Get Away' - and eventually went 6 x Platinum in the US. With their sudden surge in income, the band bought out the rights to their debut The Offspring, reissuing it on their own label, Nitro Records. They soon began signing other punk bands too, such as The Vandals, Guttermouth, Jughead's Revenge and AFI. No strangers to the live scene, The Offspring leapt at the chance to capitalise on their newfound success, and the "Smash Tour" spanned a staggering 214 dates worldwide between 1994 and 1996. These gigs were received particularly well in Australia, the one country where Smash had topped the charts. The band played 11 shows there in 1995, many of which were subject to live FM broadcasts, both nationally and in the US, and it is a collection of the best of these that features of this CD. Gathering together a wide array of classics from their catalogue, including their three recent singles, this set showcases a band hurtling towards international fame.
