Podcast: Punk Rock Radio – Round #5

Listen to our latest punk rock radio show, featuring heaps of brand new music, including Winning Streak, Teresa Banks, The JB Conspiracy and Stöj Snak.

This week’s podcast is brimming with new punk rock releases -I’ve got some great new tracks from up-and-coming bands, with a couple of old favourites thrown in for good measure. If you’re looking to hear some new music, you’re in the right place.

I’ve also got tales of portaloo incidents and socially distanced gigs, some complaints about the state of the world and quick-fire band assessments. My main hope for this episode if that you get to discover some great new bands.

Podcast: Punk Rock Radio – Round #3

Listen to our latest punk rock radio show, featuring heaps of brand new music, including Burnt Tapes, CF98, The Sinking Teeth and Other Half.

This week’s punk rock radio hours is choc full of brand new tunes. I’ve delved into the world of recent releases and collected my favourite new songs, peppered with a few old classics for good measure. 

It’s mid-August at hotter than the fires of hell in Manchester right now, so this was a sweaty recording. It reminded me of festival season, driving hours in burning sun and finding new bands out there in the fields full of drunk punks.

Review: Punk Rock Holiday 1.8 Throwback

Relive PRH 2018 with our honest, personal account of last year’s shenanigans. Featuring Bad Religion, Adrenalized, Almeida, Mad Caddies, Authority Zero and many more…

Last year I (Sarah) had a fantastic trip to Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia with the Lockjaw Records crew. I wrote a review while I was there… but I was too catastrophically overwhelmed with real life to finish it off and get it online.

Rather than waste it, have a giggle about last year’s shenanigans while you gear up for Punk Rock Holiday 2019… with some fantastic photos from Silvy Maatman and Dave Sloan.

“This is the best festival ever!” says everyone, about every festival, ever. The difference is that Punk Rock Holiday genuinely is The Best Festival Ever.

Talking to people over the weekend, interestingly the consensus is that people attend PRH year after year for reasons other than the bands playing. They come for the stunning Alpine scenery, the crystal clear, glacial rivers, and the opportunity to relax on two wonderful river beaches. The main stage is nestled in a clearing in the forest, so the evening bands play surrounded by tall, verdant trees as the sunset glistens through the canopy.

This is a festival where you are guaranteed to be partying with punk rockers from every corner of the world: I mainly spent the week with friends from Brighton, Sweden, Germany, Finland and Belgium who I’d hardly have the opportunity to see if events like this didn’t draw us together.
