Manchester Punk Festival. “MPF 2020 and Other Tall Tales: Ian ‘Tree’ Robinson” is relevant to the question above. A question that is in its sixth iteration of annual linger. MPF 2020 is indeed fast approaching, that much is true but it simultaneously seems to be taking its sweet and possibly sentient time. As much as

Splinter – London, England, United Kingdom. Punk is a ubiquitous force and this is especially so in London, England. Will, Jordan and Mark make up a three-piece dedicated to nothing but the truth and the true dismal sense of dread we feel in this modern society. They are a band singing and playing to and
Beefywink – Bristol, England, United Kingdom. One of the excellent things about music in and around the city of Bristol is how versatile and all encompassing the locales bands are. Whether it’s Indie, Punk, Post-Punk, Grunge or something simply guitar-driven at the base of it and adaptable, you can’t argue with the amount of variety
