PunkOiUK: End End of an Era: PunkOiUK – RIP
After 10 years of dedicating every minute of spare (and often not spare) time to Punk & Oi In The UK, the time has come to bid farewell. That’s right folks *circumstances have dictated I am calling it a day.
* The circumstance in question being a baby due in 8 weeks time! Over the years I have not taken any holiday (except honeymoon), taken time away from the site, had weekends off except for festivals as the website has constantly screamed for my attention - now I need that time for my forth coming child. I am the only can do things by 100% and that will apply more than ever to me being a parent.
I am proud of what Punk & Oi In The UK has achieved over the years, especially as it only ever set off to be a few pages with the type of information I wanted to find out and was impossible to find anywhere on the internet for the UK at the time. Ie what gigs were on, how to get in touch with record labels and not much more than that. It never started out with any grand scheme, any promises to anyone, or to change the world. Sometimes people have placed great expectations on the site, but please remember it is just a humble online listing of information. Punk & Oi In The UK has grown organically over the years. One of my frustrations has been I have had many more ideas than time has allowed me to implicate. I have always worked at the same time as running the site, and no matter how I try to get round (for quite a period of time only having time to sleep of 5 hours a night) there are only so many hours in a day.
Over the years Punk & Oi In The UK (and me - there has only ever been myself running the website) have survived many a challenge, but have stood strong. Here are just a few of them in no particular order that you may or may not have known about; -
Never a dull moment, eh!
With my hand on my heart I can honestly say Punk & Oi In The UK has always stayed independent and DIY, I have never let anyone dictate to me and to me that is Punk Rock.
A heart felt thank you to anyone and everyone who has helped make the site what it has been.
PunkOiUK – RIP
ps Feelers were put out to see if Punk & Oi In The UK could be passed on as a going concern with acknowledgment for time and effort. To date no satisfactory arrangement has been agreed to.
pps Please can you take me off any mailing lists
