Write Dope on Pnuk part 17 

11 tracks on a DIY CD from Peterborough's active punk band and powerhouse behind the city's regular punk nights. Five piece band who list their influences as The Business, Sham 69, Cockney Rejects, The Ruts and The Specials. Working-class, street-punk is a label they'd wear with pride.

Their targets in the songs are hypocritical coppers, sell-out punks, chavs, talent(less) show acts, substance abuse (beer as well as drugs), and the downward spiral of football, with the rise of money as motivation.

Slick production gives this is a professionalism beyond the average garage recording. Not a perfect record (couple of tracks I weren't so keen on, but hey, that's just a personal thing), but with the right wind behind them they could go far.
