Something else I'd like to draw your attention to is a Just Some Punk Songs show 2 part special. The members of The Church Of Oi! Facebook group were asked to select their favourite oi/street punk songs released after 1st Jan 2000. There were over 680 tracks voted for by 136 different bands and this has been collated into a Top 30 split over 2 shows (Tues 28 Mar and Sun 2 Apr, both start at 8pm GMT). Only the most popular song by any band was chosen so you'll get 30 songs from 30 different bands, thus showcasing the strength of modern day oi music. Will The Old Firm Casuals feature? Tune in here at 8pm GMT on Tuesday and Sunday to find out..... http://mixlr.com/just-some-punk-songs/. If 30 modern day classic oi songs aren't enough, if you right click the link you'll be able to access the chatroom and join in with the chat. DO NOT MISS.
Back to today's update, as we're on the subject of modern day classics, this is Wartime Rock 'N Roll.....
