Derrick tells us what's been happening with Make-That-A-Take, the upcoming Book Yer Ane Fest XIV, the end of Uniforms and plenty more.

CPRW Podcast Episode 18 Album Club #1
We're debuting a new series in episode 18 of the CPRW Podcast. Colin, Lara and Dan#2 will each pick an album or EP for the others to listen to. We then get together to record the podcast and discuss each others choices. At the end of the episode we then vote on which our favourite is with the winner of the episode getting to choose which year we pick an album from next time. In this episode we discuss Parched by Thirsty Guys (Bad Time Records), Melee by Dogleg (Triple Crown Records) and Entropic by Hit The Switch (Bird Attack Records). It's also very important that we point out that music isn't a competition. We're not saying that a particular album is the best, we're saying it's our favourite based on our own particular tastes.

CPRW Podcast Episode 3
For Episode three of the CPRW podcast Colin is joined by Paul and Mike from Be Sharp Promotions. The brothers are two of Colin's best friends from the world of punk rock so it was amazing to have a catch up. Colin finds out how much they know about the gigs and bands they put on with a couple of quizzes and we discuss what we think is the greatest track one on a punk album ever. This is one of those chats we have with our mates between bands at a gig and it was absolutely lovely to have. We did encounter a couple of technical difficulties due to Zoom timing us out twice (I think we styled it out very well) and Mike having some Internet difficulties towards the end. This blips add to the charm of the entire episode. We've made a Spotify playlist containing the track ones we mentionned as well as a lot more:
