Great to see how well the official book launch for 'Punks Listen' went at Whelans in Dublin last week. Band splaying, good people speaking, and money being raised as people buy this great book.
We also just found an excellent show from Wayne at Pulsebeat on MixCloud at: https://www.mixcloud.com/Wayne_Elliott/pulsebeat-282-punks-listen/
It's an hour long special with tracks from albums featured in the 'Punks Listen' book chosen by Steve Ignorant, Henry Rollins, Vic Goddard, Andy Cairns, Sean Forbes and many other alternative luminaries.
