It's been a couple of weeks since I did the previous 40 Years of Punk & New Wave: The Sounds of 1977 Playlist so thought I should rectify that with another blast through twenty tracks that were lighting up my teenage life. Hope you enjoy it.
Included this time around are many A-Sides, a few B-Sides, a couple of Peel Session tracks, and an album track.
