Razorcake Podcast #791 with Tim Brooks, ‘90s UK, Part 2

Sep 02, 2022

Back again with part 2 of UK in the ‘90s. As with the last one this is as much a trip down memory lane as it is an opportunity to highlight how much great shit there was. A lot of this gear isn’t hard to find and is worth tracking down. Post the boom of punk in the early ‘80s, the ‘90s was in part a forgotten scene. It became small and insular, but still thriving and strong with tons of great bands, labels, zines, gigs, and most importantly great people. Subcultures can be quite hard to find ways into, but the UK punk scene was always fun and welcoming. All this stuff still stands up against anything coming out today and I’m proud to have been a part of it. One love to all the friends and connections I made during that time, never forgotten.
