Here we go again, approaching capitalism's big annual birthday bash. To help ward off the fetid air of the overcrowded marketplace that is the UK, punkbrighton has come up with yet more freebies. Yep it's Christmas time again, so feel free to gorge yourself on all the goodies we've got for nowt this month.
A load of new posters, cartoons and other stuff have been added to our Poster Art Gallery (thanks to Simon Spain and all of you who sent stuff in) and we've got more free mp3's to download. The cartoon opposite is one of Joby Visigoth's efforts. Click the image to visit the gallery and see more new stuff.
Dawn from the Objects (that's her back then, opposite) sent us an old cassette of 6 Minutes (parts 1 and 2) and Stu managed to digitise both tracks after a lot of hassle and more than likely a bout of heavy effing and blinding. He got there in the end, only to be struck down with flu for his efforts. We certainly have pushed the boat out for you, fans. So thanks to Stu also, stirling geezer. Courtesy of Dawn we've got the two mp3's of the Objeks plus a new gallery page to accomodate all the scans she sent in.
We like to think of this site as organic, growing all the time, with no nasty shit added. Just good healthy shit. Keep it coming. There's also another track from the Parrots, one of their old favourites, Breaking Up New Ground. They now have three tracks avaialble on our free downloads page.
Received a copy of the Lost Women Of Rock Music, a book by Helen Reddington (McCookerybook) formerly with the Chefs, so thanks Helen. Punkdaddy will be reviewing it in the New Year. Visit her website at: www.mccookerybook.com
• The launch of our free mp3 downloads page in March was set up in conjunction with PunkBrighton and Julie Blair (and Stuart Jones) of Attrix Records, to commemorate 30 years of punk (see our March Archive) and has been a huge success. If you have mp3's of your band (1976-81) and you want them uploaded, keep sending them in. Thanks again to all who sent in WAVS, aiffs, wmv's and mp3's. Much appreciated. No doubt we'll be adding a few more next month, watch this space. To access a full size, fairly high-res printable jpeg version of our 'Make Your Own CD Cover' go to our July Archive.
• Wherever you see the headphone button throughout the site, just click to access the free mp3 download page. Some band pages also have an existing short audio loop.
