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 [...]

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. Basically I'm [...]

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. 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 [...]

Kismet H.C. - S/T 10"

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. Kismet H.C. have been shredding instruments and eardrums since the dark ages of the late 1980's, with gaps of varying lengths along the way while members did other things like making [...]

Collectivise The Interwebs!

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 going to [...]

Flipping To FLAC, Turning To Torrents

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 [...]
