It’s a week for those interested in the more metal sound of punk / hardcore, with Agnostic Front bringing their street core sing along noise to the Voodoo. They are proud New Yorkers with a strong history including one of violence during a time when violence at gigs was par for the course.

For those of us who spend so much of our time reminiscing about those violent grey days there’s a tribute to Skinny in the grand Social on Saturday. Skinny was a bass player for Paranoid Visions and during the bands early tape releases and times of excitement in the Dublin scene his smiling face was a feature at many gigs. i remember his fanzine as if it was yesterday when I got a copy off him, Skunge Drinkers from Hell. Like many Skinny left his home country to travel and live in London and his world opened up to more music. I miss him.
