Most people think of Alan Partridge when they hear the name Norwich but now there’s another reason to like the place, Shrapnel. These Norfolk boys released The Virus Conspires to a rumbling of broadsheet praise in 2014 and it was well deserved too. For anyone who likes a bit of thrash metal you could do a lot worse than checking out these rifftastic lads. Released on a pretty swanking double clear & red splatter vinyl this is an album that didn’t really seem to get the praise it deserves. “Back of the net” etc.

Absolutely ridiculous nonsense from England’s 1982 world cup squad on a 7″ picture disc. Yet another travesty of a song butchered by professional sportsmen. It gets an impressive 1.5 our of 5 on Discogs, which has to be lowest score I’ve ever seen on there. See if you can name all the players on the front, I can get a few!
