New Punknews Podcast : Punk Till I Die

New Punknews Podcast : Punk Till I Die

Punk Till I Die is a NEW podcast featuring OLD guys. Longtime Punknews contributor Tom Trauma and first wave UK punker Liverpool Neil will talk about all things punk, from the perspective of more than 70 years combined involvement in the scene. Current events may be discussed, but 30 year old stories are more likely. They will talk about the records, past and present, that make life worth living. They will talk to the people responsible for the scenes they grew up in, as well as the people making the best noise today. Most importantly, they will try to decide if there’s still a place for aging punks in today’s very different looking punk landscape. Join them in their march toward dementia! Punk Till I Die!
