Label: Fat Wreck No Use For A Name have built up quite a following within the punk scene over the past few decades, and it’s a crying shame that they aren’t as well known as some of their peers, as their music shows here. This album consists of 15 songs that are made up entirely of rarities and demos, and apparently it took three years for them to scour their back catalogue and come up with these tracks, so a lot of thought has certainly gone into the making of this compilation album. There are some alternate takes of tracks that fans will already know, however most of the songs on display are new, or at the least, extremely rare. Compilation albums can be a mixed bag at times, so it’s fantastic to see that some real effort has gone into the making of this one, especially considering that most of the songs will be new to all but the most diehard of fans. Rarities Vol. 2: The Originals comes highly recommended to No Use For A Name fans – it’s that rare compilation album that actually provides something new, so we definitely recommend that both casual and diehard fans pick this up.
