THE YOBS - Auld Land Syne (Captain Oi!)
The Yobs with Auld Land Syne which is the song you may have heard last night signifing the New Year. And as we leave the old year and begin a new I want to say that I have heard enough “Year in Review” shows to slit my throat. So many of them lamenting people who have passed away and tonight's show is not immune from such a list (see Sarde's list of bands that broke up in 2016).
So Stephe prepared his favourite Canadian punk releases from last year and here is what he liked best starting with Absolute, who were in his top 10 list from last year with “Hell’s Highest Power”. They came out with a split with PARANOID shortly after which is even more devastating and didn't find out about until 2016 even though technically it was released in 2015.
