Reviews

DIY News

After selling out the first date in Birmingham, you could tell that Sunday night was looking promising when at 4.30 pm there was already people queueing outside the O2 and surprisingly enough no one moved when Fat Mike was spotted walking around the premises. The Line up for Sunday was a bit different from the day before. Templeton Pek would replace Farse as the opening act and NOFX were going to play the album “Punk In Drublic” in full. One...
