Seeing as this is my first post on the Old Punks site I thought I'd try and make it a good one. This is a '2 disc' compilation of world and US punk bands and most of the tracks are from the early 80s. The bands on the 'world' disc are from various [...]
I'm really pleased to announce that my request for new recruits has borne fruit, and a right plump n' juicy piece he is too! So, without further ado, say hello to Ernest Embryo.
A few words about myself...
Well I'm another old punk though not quite as old as The Old Punk, born in '68. Basically I'm [...]
First things first. This track was sent to me unsolicited by the band with a request for some feedback. Fair enough. I don't know if I just happened to be tacked on to a list of every and any possible review opportunity as part of some marketing campaign, or whether someone involved with the band [...]
If you wanted conclusive proof that old punks don't need to learn new tricks to still sound relevant and fresh, this record is it.

I've been mulling over this for a while now, but I've decided to take the plunge and start encoding my rips as FLACs rather than MP3s. It's the best way of ensuring as flawless a copy as possible of the original vinyl (within the restrictions of the kit I use). With a FLAC file you're [...]
I promised quite a while back to fulfil a request for the lyrics from the Karma Sutra LP posted way back at the birth of this blog. I finally got round to taking some pics of the booklet today, so anyone else who wants to grab it can now do so.
