London Irish Punk: Life & Music… Shane MacGowan Author: Joe Merrick Publisher: Omnibus Press Published: 2001 I know this is probably one of the most obvious and stupid things I have written here on P2K, but life is subjective.

Mysterious Order of the Skeleton Suit

Permission to Kill is now a proud member of M.O.S.S. – the Mysterious Order of the Skeleton Suit, and to paraphrase (steal) Blofeld’s speech from Thunderball – ‘we are a dedicated fraternity whose strength lies in the integrity of its members’.

Twice Upon a Time

Artist: Siouxsie & the Banshees Label: Wonderland Release Year: 1992 I have a strange ‘love / hate’ relationship with Siouxsie and the Banshees. Actually ‘hate’ is too strong a word. It’s more of a ‘love / oooh dear!’ relationship. I made a piss-poor goth in the mid eighties. I guess my heart wasn’t really into […]
