worth a read…

We don’t usually write blogs about newspaper articles, but…. yesterday, Dave Simpson, music editor of The Guardian, posted a truly wonderful piece about the impact of Clay Records on the second wave of UK punk. Those of you who know of Clay already will be aware it was the brainchild of Mike Stone, and was based in an independent record shop in Stoke-on-Trent. You’ll also know that legendary UK punk bands GBH and Discharge were two of Clay’s very successful signings.

The article is a joy to read. Our only disappointment is that it didn’t mention either City Baby or But after the gig… our two best-selling autobiographies of Ross Lomas and Tezz Roberts, respectively. But that’s being really picky. The article, as we say, is a joy. And if you haven’t read it already (or you’d like to read it again) you’ll find it here. Fill yer boots!

Stay safe. And please, share this article with your friends.
