World & US Punk Compilations

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 countries around […]

New Kid On The Block

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. […]

The Choke – Tuff Kids Promo

First things first. This track was sent to me unsolicited by the band with a request for some feedback. Fair enough.

OPND is recruiting now!

I could do with more old punks (or even some younger ones with a bit of suss) joining up with the OPND Soviet – it seems a shame that my postings here are so intermittent when there’s all this space available.

You don’t have to rip anything (although I’m certainly not […]

Flipping To FLAC

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 source (within the restrictions of the kit I use). With a FLAC file you’re […]
