I’ve a healthy obsession with Dublin punk/new wave from the late 70s till mid 80s. If I was asked, here would be my top five Dublin first wave punk singles:

1. The Radiators From Space – Television Screen (1977)

2. The Atrix – Treasure On The Wasteland (1980)

3. The Blades – Hot For You (1980)

4. The Boomtown Rats – Lookin’ After Number One (1977)

5. The Vipers – I’ve Got You (1978)

There are quite of number of other classic Dublin punk/new wave singles that are impossible to find either online or in real life. I think it would be a great idea to digitize as many as possible and put them online so they can be enjoyed by all. If anyone has any of the following singles lying in their attic or garage, please get in touch.
