Martin Atkins gives Acid Drops the OK

Former PIL drummer- musician, Producer & mentor Martin Atkins has been kind enough to give me his consent to post some live recordings from bands he has been involved with down the years.

Martin has had a long and varied career in the music industry & apart from PIL (of course) he has been the force behind Invisible Records and a couple of other bands that I have loved - Brian Brain & Pig Face

Follow Martin on Twitter


say hello & check out his current projects

PIL Head Thanks him for his support - he has made a fan very happy

Expect some of Martin's live career to appear here soon

more shit from media-coming under- fire

I dont get it???
I had a link removed & a strike added against my media fire account for a post I made back in 2010.. Fucking 2010
Sex Pistols, Winter Gardens, December 1976

the thing I dont understand is that the post in question is an audience recording that is easily available on torrent sites, download sites & Ebay on a regular basis & it HAS NOT been officially of semi officially released as far as I know.

I might email mediafire to find out who put the complaint in

I cant believe some fukka has complained about a post that is over 2 years old & very easily available

It also proves that NO ONE reads the blog properly cos if they did they would know that an email to myself would get the post & link removed with no problems
