Repressed Records get the last word in on 2016 with our annual Staff Picks. Nic’s Staff Picks for 2016 It kind of surprised myself with what records really resonated with me this year, of course there’s some long-time favourites in there but a lot of things that weren’t exactly what I thought I wanted to hear.  No embedded audio or video links for me, just my hamfisted words. &nb...

Hey! I've been getting on a bit of a punk binge lately, namely: Grotto - Manic Evil 7". I read this about the first song Bog: "It's about a creature coming out of your shit and feeding on your mind.

Sorry about the formatting on this but it'll have to do. Had a listen to the Uranium Club Lp and the Sievehead 7" so far and they sound essential. French Oi! punks Rixe debut 7" was a bit of a sleeper that slowly took off and their new 7" is just as good. The new Blazing Eye 7" is a ripper as is the debut stomper from  TV Crime from Nottingham.   ...
