  • Old Punk On Hope -- More Pussy Riot!

    Yeah -- I know -- I'm the only person on here with a fascination for these women, but damn, if you watch the video with the volume off, you can learn a thing or two about what they're doing.

V. sad. Thanks be for podcasts. Still, it's nice...
  • Old Punk on Hope - Feeling like a loud song? Me too.

    Ok, yeah, I know. There are people here in the Hideout who think Acca Dacca is naff. A bloated, sad old band. Hey! That happens to a lot of bands I've loved.  Doesn't mean I cain't indulge once in a while (the Bon Scott phenomenon). And that goes for this song. And I like this version. Why? Somethin...

  • Old Punk on HOpe - Hmmmm -- thinking about the music generation gap and a classic

    Been thinking about a comment I read in the Hideout -- asking for the old-timers to stop being boring  -- something like - stop saying it was better back in the '70's or something like that.  This got me wondering -- well, yeah, saying that is incredibly lame. I guess that's why I'm such a big fan o...

  • Old Punk on Hope - Garage on a Tuesday AM, Down Under

Ah, the armed forces at work. What better on a Tuesday am -- too many days 'til Friday after all. Haven't had my coff...
  • Old Punk on Hope - Fuck, I've got another blog?

    Well, it was bound to happen. I have 2 work-related blogs that don't allow for my musings on music, past, present and future, so I'm diggin' having a little corner in the Hideout to type out such things.
