Polyvinyl Craftsmen Norton Special

We've not been able to get in thee Black Shack this week to record a regular show but with the sad news that Billy Miller from Norton Records died this week we've put together a little tribute selection.

We Pauls are all big Norton fans, whether it's digging up nuggets from the past or releasing contemporary stuff you are guaranteed quality from the label where the loud sound abounds. We've played plenty of their releases over the last 5 years so it seemed right to do something as a big thanks to Billy and Miriam for all the wonderful music they have given us.

RIP Billy and lots of love to Miriam x
