Sinatras 'Let's Be Frank' LP

It's not the biggest section on the website, but it's one of the most active, so I've got round to ensuring that all 120 post-punk items on the database now have images attached.

What is post-punk is a hotly debated topic. Some people regard it as more or less anything that followed the intital punk movement. I regard it as bands that were influenced by punk bands, or the DIY spirit, but weren't punk.

I suppose bands like Prag Vec, Delta 5, Monochrome Set would have been some the first wave of bands that I'd have put into that category.

Scotland World Cup Song (well…)

A friend who is a Scottish football fan sent me a link to this tune Anything But '66 Again by some chancers called The Sussex Highlanders. It's an anti-English world cup campaign song from a Scottish perspective. It's actually quite funny, but coming from that third world footballing nation it's a bit rich.

If you're so inclined it's available for the price of a deep fried Mars bar from iTunes.
