So what's on this week's Just Some Punk Songs show you're no doubt all thinking. You aren't? Well I'm going to plug the show anyway as it's gonna be another unmissable hour's worth of killer new releases, including the song I'm featuring below. The show starts later today at 8pm (UK time) before getting played on various online radio stations around the globe and then getting uploaded to Mixcloud next Sunday.
