Discover recent punk news and much more
After the great success of the first meganews, that wasn’t named this way, we are back with a super running shot of punk news that we discovered and that you pointed out. The meganews will be ready presumably when you’re least expecting it (to be noticed: when we’re in the right mood), but we will always let you know, so you can help us adding something of yours or other’s that you saw and you want to point out. Before meganews comes out we will ask you via Facebook and Instagram to help us make it adding new songs, videos, singles, fanzines, projects, concerts, initiatives and so on. Follow us!
Punk is an attitude for us, if it was only music we wouldn’t have opened, so not merely musically punk topics are welcome – this is why you can also add Antifa demonstrations, against repression etc – if they share the attitude. Militant hip hop, Ska, blues, and songwriting are welcome provided that they share with punk spaces and values that are its basis.
It’s cool to listen and discover new stuff, but if you can buy the physical copy to support bands and labels and if there’s the opportunity to donate each little aid is a big aid.
Swipe the article attentively because the order is random and you will find various players and more info for each name involved.
And now get ready to discover recent punk news and much more. THEME SONG! (Ah no, we don’t have it!).
