The Warrington Ska Punk Podcast #7

That’s right, you heard it here first, it’s ANOTHER WARRINGTON SKA PUNK PODCAST!! We got Dave Emmerson of Visions Press back on the show. Mostly because we couldn’t get anyone better…

We discuss Wizards, Dave’s Christmas presents, the barely-even-a-genre that is “Noise”, and about five minutes of both of us going “URRRRGGGGHH”. Plus Dave’s zine, that was basically my idea.

Album Reviews

Harijan – Harijan

Dour, northern and brilliant. The ska punk that 2020 deserved.

I need to start this review with a confession. Cards on the table time. It’s this: I love what TNS Records represent, absolutely. I absolutely love who they are in the scene, I love their DIY ethic, their stand out values, their inclusivity. But… I struggle to love a lot of the music they release. The problem’s not them – its me.

They’re just a bit too ferocious for me. Their music? It’s wild, it’s untamed. It’s punk with the limiters taken off. And, I’ll be honest, I spent most of yesterday evening reading by the log burner, listening to Nina Simone, and some very chilled out Pama International reggae. And so, the brutal reality is… TNS Records are too punk for me?
