AN ADVERT OF SORTS #1


I don’t really do adverts here, but something’s are worth mentioning. CAPTAIN OI have been keeping the 80’s Punk Rock spirit alive for many years now. Recently did business with them to get a copy of The Best Of The Dark, by surprise, surprise a band called the THE DARK, it includes all their singles and their only album The Chemical Warfare, a great band, with a rather short career, think The Damned. Shame The Living End Live 12”; a recording of the bands final gig isn't included, by now they had Razzle on drums, who went on to join Hanoi Rocks and shared a house with Dave from those non anarcho-scensters The Apostles (trivia fans) I digress, as the point of this post is to big up Captain Oi for their on the ball despatch team. I placed the order in the morning, and the CD arrived the next day. Result! It still sounds as great as it did 20+ years ago. In an ironic twist, since my purchase John over at Punks On Postcards has posted a vinyl rip of the album, on his excellent site. Just shows yer can’t keep a good band down. There ya go advert over, time to exercise consumer choice, and if anyone’s got the Live 12”………

Who sold out? Phil Langham was always keen to push new talent

Let's not forget that Riff was roadie for the mighty Menace

All a bunch of wussies if it kicked off though, witness the bottling of the Dark at a gig in Bedford, oh well, don't suppose we can all be fearless or stupid as was I!
