Thank goodness for adventurous labels like Kill Rock Stars, releasing vintage and slightly obscure punk goodies from long gone bands like the Delta 5. The English group’s single album, See the Whirl, disappeared without a trace (as did the band in 1981), but KRS dug up all their singles, along with some John Peel BBC sessions and a few live tracks for this collection. Three women and two men kicked up a ruckus with double guitars and double basses, and delivered a potent antidote to the surging social conservatism at the time, especially from a feminist point of view. “Mind Your Own Business” is a stinging send-off with little more than a shouted chorus, loping bass, and a shimmery cymbal keeping it together, while “You” is a shrill, funk-heavy admonishment to an inadequate lover, where every question (“Who was seen with somebody else?”) is answered by an insanely infectious “you, you, you, YOU!”  “Try” and “Now That You’ve Gone” are slinky and sophisticated, with vocals on the former stretching for operatic heights just for kicks. Throughout, there are clawing and clanging punk guitars, skittering percussion, frenetic rhythms and coolly ironic lyrics. Good times.
