Polyvinyl Craftsmen A-Z Playlist

So, for some reason this week we haven't managed to get together to record a show. Not sure why, a mixture of holidays, work stuff and general lack of communication really.

What I've put together as a last minute fill-in is a Spotify playlist from A-Z of the first band/artist that came into my head for each letter. I then picked a song by each of them, as it was quick and off the top of my head there is a ton of stuff that's never head a PVC airing before. I take full responsibility for the track listing as Laggers and Miggins weren't involved. If you don't like the mix it's all down to me. 

Hopefully we'll be more organised next week and things will be back to normal.
