Fireworks

The reason people were looking forward to 2014 was the new Fireworks album, Oh Common Life. Okay maybe it wasn’t, but I know Miles and me were looking forward to it.

Punk isn’t just the Sex Pistols

Hello, DISCLAIMER: This isn’t a stale punk show playing the sex pistols and reminiscing about the golden days of ’77, we weren’t there and punk never died.
