Mr Drayton's Record Player

Mr Drayton's Record Player Proudly Presents 

Punktober 1977!

1977 was the year of the Punk Rocker. Young folk up and down the land, embraced this much needed release from the drudgery of the longhaired, patchouli oiled, kaftan-bedecked music behemoths. Enough was enough.

To celebrate 1977 with anarchy and chaos, Mr Drayton offers you 5 classic albums and 10 punk rock 45’s, bringing sedition and malcontentedness to the comfortable surroundings of the Digital Lounge.

All albums featured are played in full from original vinyl, all most probably bought from Record Village in Scunthorpe in the olden days.

All evenings feature a slideshow, a quiz and Mr Drayton talking cobblers.
