Vice Squad: Punk Rock Radio
As all my mates know - and as some of you reading this will know - one of my all-time favourite bands is Vice Squad. And, yes, I do know not everyone shares my taste for punk music. But, that's partly why I do what I do here: to convert you all!
So, with that in mind, here's one you should get hold of: Vice Squad's 2012 stormer: Punk Rock Radio.
Blistering, bouncing, soaring and speeding, it's a massively catchy collection of perfect UK punk. And the track Advance Britannia is a total masterpiece that is as British and as anthem-like as the Sex Pistols' classic God Save the Queen and the Clash's 1985 track, This is England.
Okay, I know a lot of people don't consider the last Clash line-up to be the real Clash, but I defy anyone to listen to This is England and not get stirred up. And that's the same with Advance Britannia.
If AB is not booming out of the windows of Buckingham Palace by this time next week, then there's no bloody justice in the world!
Buy, buy, buy, BUY!!
