As is traditional I've scoured the internet for a suitably funky Christmas mix to replace that 'Now That's What I Call A Bieber Christmas' CD that's somehow found its way into your home. I reckon Bieber plants 'em there. Anyway, this year I've plumped (literally...I've put on half a stone just thinking about Christmas) for Funky Santa's XXX MaaS Vol 14. I had to...it's got the frickin' Weather Girls on and I'll all about The Weather Girls.
Whatever you're up to have a cool yule and I'll catch you in 2019...unless I've succumbed to gin poisoning...which is a distinct possibility. Ho ho ho!

Picked up a neat haul of US pop punk CDs from a chazza at the weekend, 49p a piece...good grief. One or two fresh names to me (Leftover Crack anyone?) but here's a brand new Christmas offering from one of the groups I did know, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, with a punked up dash through that ol' favourite Santa Baby.

Straightoutta Halifax The Orielles have released some cracking singles so far but I reckon this is the best yet. Apparently the song's about a cat that wants to...er...transform into a lady...okey dokey...you don't get that from Ed Sheeran lyrics do you eh?

If you're in any doubt about which punk band made the best collection of tunes just cop a listen to Singles Going Steady, released a mere two years into Buzzcock's career. I was lucky enough to see the band a few years back and they were every bit as good 30 odd years on. RIP Pete.
