Pizza Punks, Glasgow

Hi! The more observant of you, dear readers, will have noticed something unusual about this review, and that’s no mean feat, considering we are less than 50 words in.

Havet, Bromley

Oi oi. I was on holiday recently. Well, I say a holiday, more of a city break. Well, I say a city break… more of a… I went to Bromley. “But why would you want to do that?” Good question. Partly homesickness (I grew up in nearby Sydenham and I try to visit at least once a […]

When we’re not touring and recording great new albums (i.e. everything we’ve done since we split up in 1984), we like […]
