Lost Cherrees - All Part of Growing Up (1984)

Excellent UK anarchopunk. All Part of Growing Up is among the more accessible peace punk records, with a sound that's not all that far removed from X-Ray Spex, or even the Go-Go's. As so many people do, when I first fell for punk in high school, I fell hard, and ended up listened pretty much exclusively to crust and peace punk, so Lost Cherrees' less overtly pissed-off, more melodic approach eventually helped to ease my transition back towards less spiky sounds. "Yet Still Comes the Rain" remains one of my all-time favorite punk songs.

1. Blind or Dead
2. Nervous Breakdown
3. Escalation
4. F-Plan, G-Plan
5. You're You, I'm Me

11. The Wait
12. No Way
13. You Didn't Care
14. But the Rape Goes On

It's another sacrifice for the human race
