Here are a handful of shots from crusty hardcore punks Born/Dead’s last ever gig on UK soil. It was a belter of a night and a great way for the band to go out. I’d almost forgotten that I had these but better late than never eh? I’m crap at editing and sharing pics (that’s […]

Hold A Grudge – Doing Time CD

Hold A Grudge are classic mid-paced hardcore, the good old solid kind that’ll get you through a bad day with enough left over for a pleasant supper. While at first it may seem like there’s nothing particularly groundbreaking about the sound, listen a bit more closely and you’ll find there’s plenty of originality on show, […]

Cauliflower With Mustard Sauce

This is another contribution from landysrock (cheers). Unfortunately, I don’t like overly mustard-flavoured things (a teaspoon or so in a curry or stew is my limit) but, for those who do, it probably doesn’t get much simpler than this unless you’re squeezing some on a veggiedog.

Goes with anything! Serves 4-6.

600ml unsweetened soya milk […]

The Redskins – Epilogue CD

Back in the 80s, Britain and much of the rest of the world was a grim place and, to a large extent, the music we listened to reflected that. Sure we had coloured hair, drink, drugs and free festivals to take the edge off, and a few bands who tried to infuse their music with […]

Jamaican Fritters

If you’ve got the munchies and want a fairly quick and filling snack, these should fit the bill. They’re a variation on the Indian pakora, but the addition of the buckwheat flour seems to make them both lighter and more substantial. If you don’t have buckwheat flour, just replace it with extra chickpea flour. They’re […]

Old Crust For New Bread

Oli of Civilisation Records is putting out a repress of Hellbastard’s classic first studio LP ‘Heading For Internal Darkness‘. Having bought stuff from him before I know and appreciate the time and effort he puts in to producing some really tasty bits of vinyl, and this looks to be no different.

Artwork printing and plastic […]

Tomato & Red Onion Salad With A Punchy Dressing

Simple things can often give the greatest pleasure, much like your humble author. This salad and dressing is one of them.

Makes however much you want (salad) and loads (dressing).

For the salad:

As many tomatoes as you need for the number of people eating it – cherry tomatoes are best and should be halved, […]

A//Political – The Greatest Working Crass Rip-Off – Discography LP + Book

I have never been so happy or excited about a record as when this one arrived at my door. A//Political are one of my favourite bands of all time so there will be no surprise that I will have nothing but great things to say about them. Anyway, after a long wait this record finally […]
