Death Of The High Street - Drink Driver


  I've been a bit lax with updates during the last week or so but there's some cool stuff lined up to see out the year. I've been hard at work putting together the annual Just Some Punk Songs Top 100 Songs of 2021 chart and that'll be posted on the 30th & 31st of December. There'll hopefully also be an interview with the year's most prolific band any day now. And although there may not be updates every day as you're used to, there will be some. Including one today which is a timely reminder not to drink and drive this Christmas. 

  Death Of The High Street are a 4 piece punk band from the Midlands featuring a line up of Scott Baxter (lead vocals and guitar), Andy Purves (guitar and backing vocals), Ash Simpson (bass) and Joe Hodges (drums). They've been together for a year and released a debut single titled Exit in August after being snapped up by the legendary Alan McGee for his It's Creation Baby label. 

  They've recently released a cheap & cheerful video which they made themselves a year ago for a song which takes a wry look at a social concern which is most prevalent at this time of the year. It's a musical mash up of punk, alt and grunge and it suggests the band will have a very decent 2022. It's available now on streaming sites.

  It's called Drink Driver...
