Weekly Playlist 19/10/16

Back in the mists of time, I vowed to do a weekly playlist on Ramblings About. However, as these plans tend to do, it fell by the wayside and quite frankly I forgot about it. Until today! Because starting now every Wednesday is going to see me post a Spotify playlist put together by yours truly. It will be a collection of songs old and new that for whatever reason are on my mind that week. For example, this week we have the new single from Creeper alongside the brilliant Kerbdog who couldn’t be left out after their cracking show last week.

The Wonder Years

I have a strange relationship with pop-punk.  It played a big part in my early musical education, but in recent years I’ve viewed it as a stale doughnut of a genre.  I’ll probably have a nibble, just out of interest, but ultimately I’m going to put it down and go and get something a little bit tastier.  Every now and then though band comes along that reminds me just why I spent so many hours listening to this stuff.
