***Rip Off was formed in 1978 by GEORGE DOHERTY to capitalize on the vibrant punk scene in Northern Ireland. The original releases have eluded collectors worldwide for years and when they occasionally surface only trade hands at large sums. This Rip Off Records compilation LP should put an end to some of that hunting because for the first time in years punk and powerpop fans can easily locate and afford their favorite tracks by CRAMP, CLIVE CULBERTSON, LENNY & THE LAWBREAKERS, NO SWEAT, PRETTY BOY FLOYD & THE GEMS and THE ZIPPS. But that's not all! Sing Sing tracked down George Doherty and got a few unreleased tracks from THE FADERS, MINOR CLASSICS and TINOPENERS! The Rip Off Records story isn't as well known as many of it's Ulster counterparts (Undertones, Rudi, Protex, Stiff Little Fingers, Good Vibrations), but these twelve tracks represent an incredible time and place in Northern Ireland punk. Much of this is due to the fact that many of the musicians that made up the Rip Off bands were older, more experienced musicians and Doherty's Hyde Park Studios, in comparison to Good Vibration's Wizard Studios, was a top notch setup. Each of the resulting recordings are well-crafted tunes perfectly captured to tape by either Doherty himself or his go-to producer CLIVE CULBERTSON.
