This is October’s podcast and the second of three shows focusing on punk and hardcore from my home town of Southampton. This is an entire show of old Southampton bands from between 2000–2007 – basically from about the millennium to when I went travelling. I started off with the idea that I could do a kind of overview that would include all the great bands from this period but there were too many songs and too many people that needed to be included. So even though Ten Songs #11 is going to feature another short set of old Southampton HC, I couldn’t include everyone and everything. Sorry, it’s nothing personal. Anyhow, I think this has been my favourite show to record and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did digging out all the old CDs and putting it together. - Phil Chokeword

1. This was put together on my family's PC using Audacity and a USB record player, some over played CDs and 7"s and a cheap Internet microphone. Plus this MP3 is a lower bit rate than most in order to keep it at a manageable size. So if there’s a song on here that you dig and want to buy the record it came off, don't be put off if it sounds kinda rough or scuzzy. I can guarantee it'll sound better in the original format. I hope that makes sense!
2. I asked the bands if it was OK to podcast their songs and they were cool with it. I think one of the great things about the Internet is that it’s really easy to get in contact with people whose music you dig and I'd like to take time to thank them for allowing me to play their songs. Cheers!
