I saw The Undertones at The Rescue Rooms in Nottingham last night. Excellent gig in a good venue. I was very impressed with the new vocalist, sounds very Feargal, which may not be a good thing. Anyway, the fact that The Undertones have a new lead vocalist, seemed irrelevant such was the quality of ...

I paid £15 for 'Choosie Susie (the Rattus freebie) in 1980. I bought it via a private ad in the NME.I thought I had got hold of a collectable item that would increase in value.

For an idea of how punk manifested itself and and it's ethos I would recommend watching the movie 'Convoy' starring Kriss Kristoffersen.

It was a dreadfull time Alana (or is that Lammy) full of hideous Hobbits wicked wearwolves and people walking around with funny clothes and even funnier hair.
