A top 10 today selected by Tear Up vocalist Jamie Flanagan. Tear Up are the Watford based Oi! punk band that i posted in the blog yesterday. They've a debut album, Playground Politics, coming soon and you can find out more about the band here : https://www.facebook.com/tearupoi/
It's not really a surprise that Jamie's chosen a bunch of Oi songs as his top 10 but what is nice is that he's not just concentrated on the classics, he's also picked some great new music too.
