    Chris and Nick - Lockdown Songs

    Chris and Nick - Lockdown Songs

    We have been away for a few weeks with Chris's wedding etc, but we are back with this special episode. We have no interview this time, but Chris and Nick take the opportunity to go through the songs that have got them through lockdown (there are other songs besides from 'Family Man' by LOVEBREAKERS we promise!). We get into other genres of music we love that we do not always discuss on this podcast. 


    We also take the time to discuss new music from Settle Your Scores, Lil Lotus, State Champs and Lil Huddy.

Pretty Damn Good

A simple structure with a really nice flow - touches on both niche and mainstream punk so there's something for everyone and the chemistry between the presenters is great. Also downloaded a couple of the band recommendations after listening so it's great if you're looking for new music suggestions. All in all, a total winner - looking forward to the next one!
