A punk rock blast from the past

Leave a comment
Music, Punk Rock

Throughout my teenage years and into my twenties I was a regular in the local music scene watching talented friends, fools and misfits take to the stage providing spontaneous, energetic, enthusiastic, unpredictable, fun, ridiculous yet fantastic punk rock, rock’n’roll & electronic performances.  I also contributed a tad.

During these years people made an conscience effort to promote their gigs by plastering posters to walls, printing flyers and leaving them in shops.  I kept and collected some flyers from past local events which you can view below.

This is a small tribute to that scene and all involved…

Some of these bands are no longer together and are not available for hiring.
And some of the venues have changed ownership or have now permanently closed.
