No Alternative formed from the ashes of KGB which was originally a 3 piece featuring John “Genocide” Patterson on guitar and lead vocals, Jeff Rees on bass and backing vocals and Greg Langston (Tuxedo Moon) on drums and backing vocals. There were several line up changes from ’78-’82, leading to the side project Alternative Tools. During during their short lived career they released an E.P. and had songs included on several compilations. They had a brief reunion in the late 80s. This Cd includes songs by??KGB (7 & 14), Alternative Tools (8 & 21-26) and No Alternative( all other tracks). There are 2 covers: Vincent Davis’s “Be Bop-a-Lula” and Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues”. Post-punk with a 60s garage sound at times.
