Pet Needs release ‘Punk Isn’t Dead (It’s Just Up For Sale)’

There’s an expanded edition of the band’s Frank Turner produced debut album ‘Fractured Party Music’. The song ‘Punk Isn’t Dead ( It’s Just Up For Sale)’ is one of four new tracks that you will find on it. How did this come about? Johnny Marriott explains…

“When Xtra Mile gave us the option to record songs for an extended album, we wanted to make something chaotic and euphoric. We’ve revisited and re-recorded some of our oldest tunes, as well as fresh takes on songs from Fractured Party Music. This is our punk EP.  Frantic songs made to play live, recorded in 48 hours of carnage.”

The new songs will also appear as an EP. Of the single Johnny says

““Punk Isn’t Dead (It’s Just Up For Sale)” is a punk tune written on a Colchester platform as commuters waited for the train to London. In the rain. Again. This is a portrait of people with collared shirts covering tattoos, avoiding eye contact as post-hardcore blasts through headphones. Of course, this is essentially autobiographical. I was in a job where I couldn’t be myself. I left it without a real plan, and it was the best thing I ever did.”
