As always all links here will take you to sites where you can purchase, stream, further investigate, etc. the bands played except of course for the two Irish bands who are so totally old school that their only internet presence are myspace pages.
I wasn’t going to put up a show this week in order to mark the untimely and very sad passing of Colin McQuillan of Runnin Riot. But it was pointed out to me that silence is probably not the way that Colin would want to be remembered. So Tommy , Donal and I picked a few tunes we thought Colin would like. Here they are, all tunes, no talking.
This week’s show started off weird with Von LMO and Le Shok and then got weirder when I got to the end and realised the mic hadn’t recorded any of the vocal links. So tonight’s vocal links are brought to you by a combination of lack of sleep and the fermentation of sugars. Things stay pretty weird with The Spits and The Testors before we launch into
As always click on the bands for links, some of which are free downloads of the tunes here and by jaysus, if you got taste and the know how to play an instrument. Start a band and stick me on the guest list
This week’s show is all about Dave Grohl’s new Sonic Highways documentary series, the first two of which aired last week. The first one was all about the early Chicago punk scene and the second covered the Washington DC DIY Hardcore scene.

This week I am joined by Moose of band of the week - New Gods – in anticipation of the release of their deput EP on Distro-Y Records. Tune in for exclusive tracks from the new 7″, loads of rocking tunes and some increasingly shambolic banter. The track list for your Thursday night session is as follows:
Thanks to Moose for coming around for a bit of midweek skit. Everyone else should pick up the New Gods 7″ when it comes out in December and watch out for their imminent and so far unannounced record release gig.
