This show was 8th in the global punk chart, 8th in the global indie rock chart and 58th in the global rock chart.
Here's a "special edition" episode of the program - 10 Parallel World Punk-Era 45s, all "singles" that should have existed as singles but never actually did. This is actually cribbed from a piece I wrote in Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #6 back in 2017, and while I should have turned that article into a podcast back then to help "strengthen the brand", the idea only occured to me five years later, i.e. this week.
So if you pulled together some of the best punk-era compilation tracks, demos, album cuts etc. into a series of ten 7" singles, that series might sound something like this. The punk era is very expansively defined as 1977-2000 for our purpose, and includes material by The Bags, Midnight Circus, The Screamers, 2x4s, Red Cross, 39 Clocks and more. We've even added bonus fake 45s from Saccharine Trust and the Flesh Eaters for this very special podcast version of the article.
