AllMusic Review by

Au-Go-Go is tuned in to the rich, historical down-under punk scene. They just put out Root and a Beer from the Chosen Few of the late-'70s Melbourne punk scene. Having started out as a heavy metal act named Deathwish, the group allowed the sounds of America's the Stooges and Blue Öyster Cult seduce them into something meaner and heavier that eventually became very rowdy and punk. So it all goes full circle and now listeners can enjoy the beer-spewing antics of the originals and choice covers from the Sonics and Australia's Coloured Balls and Radio Birdman.
