|Various Artists - Southend Punk Rock History 1976 - 1986|
|Press Release / Bio|
Steve Pegrum launched the website 'Southend Punk Rock History 1976 - 1986',
celebrating the Punk and Alternative heritage of this seaside town on the
Thames Estuary. The Punk explosion hit the town hard, and being only 32
miles from London, Southend Punks enjoyed not only their own thriving scene,
but were also able to regularly inhabit all the London and surrounding area
punk gigs and clubs. The website celebrates Southend's own experience of
The Punk Years though, and with the contributions of photographs and various
items of memorabilia from many ex-punks, the sites archive has grown considerably
since its inception.
The Southend Punk Rock History compilation CD is an extension of the site, and the key aim is to include a track (preferably Studio / Demo quality) by as many of the main Punk bands that the area produced during the period. A project of this undertaking does require an abundance of time, and certain tracks are still proving elusive, but already the tracklisting is building. The booklet will include rare photographs, local press cuttings and the CD in conjunction with the website will hopefully provide an insight into this special era.
The tracklisting will hopefully include songs by: The Machines, The Psychopaths, The Vicars, The Sinyx, The Bullies, The Kronstadt Uprising, The Burning Idols, Allegiance To No One, The Prey and many more
