Paradise Alley/Plastic Tears “Class of ’92” Single

This song celebrates the friendship between these two bands.

Opening song "ByGone Boy" offers us some fine glam punk rock'n'roll reminding a bit of early MANIC STREET PREACHERS while "This Ship Ain't Going Down" show us the snotty street punk side of NICOTINE PRETTY. The band... Continue Reading →
