  1. Look forward to listening to this. Get That Monster off the Stage is great.

  2. Congrats re this.Should be a documentary done on the Cork punk scene which has received zilch kudos and no publicity despite being recognised as as good as Dublin’s or the Belfast scene.it gave rise to great bands like this one,Fatima Mansions,Belsonic Sound etc etc
