First up, Happy New Decade!!!
So, 2019 was a bit of a manic year us and we have let the website slip. So over the next few days I am hoping to get it back and running again with hopefully more regular posts.
Now at the start of a new decade I felt it was important to reflect on the decade that I went from a casual folk punk fan to an obsessive folk punk fan.
With that in mind I present to you in reverse order my Top 25 Folk Punk albums from 2010 – 2019 please bare in mind we started Mersey Celt Punks around 2016 so there is abit of a bias from that point forward.
