These Days Will Never Come Again

All that remains for me to say is cheers 'n' beers for the last twelve months and

A Year In My Ears 2011

Although I don't think I've spent so much on new music this year when compared to last, what I have bought has been immensely satisfying. These ten releases have ended up doing multiple revolutions on various stereophonic devices around my house, and have definitely earned their keep.

Amebix - Sonic Mass LP (Easy Action Records). An [...]

Remember The Time...? (Part 1, Maybe)

On a certain forum that I hang around on, someone asked folks to write about their three most memorable gigs. Seeing as I've still got a memory, I put it to good use. And, being the generous soul I am, I'm reposting what I remembered here for me, you and generations to come.

Wow, tough. But [...]

Socialism For The Masses

I've come to realise that there are actually some benefits to be had by being part of this social network thing. So if you now take a look in the left sidebar, you'll see an image that links to my facebook profile. For day-to-day tittle-tattle from yours truly, this is the place to go. I've [...]

Connecting The Dots

Here's a little bit of shameless self-promotion that fulfils both my need to do something during long nights of insomnia and my belief in mutual solidarity and support. Punks of the virtual world, I give you the Anarcho-Punk Pages.

It's really not much to look at and, for a code hacker rather than a coder, the [...]

Happy Tweeting Tweeting, Happy Tweet

Now here's something I didn't expect - Captain Sensible has just tweeted about this collection of random nonsense and given us the highest praise:

This is what the webs all about.... DIY punk, vegan recipes, politics, and even a Pogo Pope Compilation http://www.oldpunksneverdie.com/

Blimey! I met the Captain back in the mid '80s, when he took part [...]

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 pressing [...]

New Punk News Blog

Fellow punk Alex Distro-y has started a blog dedicated to listing all of the latest releases from the punk world, as well as other relevant news, events and so on. I don't know exactly what Alex's definition of punk for this particular site is but, from what I know of him, I'm guessing he's on [...]

Gobsmacked

WOW.

For the first time in many, many years, I've been left speechless. A few minutes ago, settling down with my first cuppa and fag of the day, I browsed to my email account for the site. There was one new message waiting. A quick click, a brief scan and my mouth dropped open. I still [...]
