V.A. (New Wave/Post Punk/No Wave)


In the Beginning There Was Rhythm"... One of the most important compilation albums released by Soul Jazz Records in the UK in 2001, "In the Beginning There Was Rhythm", which signaled the beginning of the post-punk movement in earnest. WAS RHYTHM" has been fully remastered and reissued! This is Soul Jazz Records' first foray into UK post-punk and punk-funk, and the first groundbreaking compilation to cross the boundaries between punk and dance music. It was the first time that UK post-punk and punk-funk bands from Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Bristol, London, and other parts of the North of England, which at the time was a bleak and industrial area, presented to the world the results of their longing for black American rhythms and their experiments with a sound that was unique at the time. The title of the album is derived from the song of the same name by The Slits. There is not a single boring song on In the Beginning. It will surprise the younger generation of listeners and entertain longtime listeners with songs of rarefied quality. You should buy it." Pitchfork
