Before Green Day, Operation Ivy and Lookout! Records put the East Bay's burgeoning punk scene on the map, a trio of Berkeley kids were reinventing the genre with music that was melodic but full of feedback and a singer who sounded like he gargled glass. "The Sound Of A New World Being Born" compiles Crimpshrine's two Lookout! singles, "Sleep, What's That?" and "Quit Talkin' Claude...," with a handful of compilation and split 7" tracks. In cooperation with the band, The Numero Group remastered the 16-track album and freshened up the accompanying poster to make the perfect legacy edition of this '80s punk classic.
