Control Hooligan Rock n Roll

Control Hooligan Rock n Roll

One of the best debut punk albums I've heard in a very long time, the debut album by Control is out now on Step-1 records. It's hard-hitting streetpunk with intelligent lyrics and excellent tunes. Unlike so may other recent albums it's been properly produced and benefits enormously from that.

Have a listen on their MySpace site.

Industrial Nation magazine

Industrial Nation magazine

I've acquired a large collection of industrial and gothic magazines and fanzines, all in excellent or mint condition. None of them are very early, but they're all better ones from the genres and there's a lot of them, including:

Industrial Nation, Bats and Red Velvet, Hard Wired, Goth Nation, Interference, Vampire Freaks, Naked Truth, Side Line, Tomb Raver and a load of one-offs, plus bits and pieces of memorabilia.

What's nice about this collection is that all the CDs that came with the mags are still with them.

All will be on the next newsletter and site update.
