TOP OF THE PUNKS – In Aid of Mental Health Charity ‘Mind’

top-of-the-punksPunk Online are pleased to help with the inspiring idea from Simon Turner called Top Of The Punks.

As a long time sufferer of depression, Top Of The Punks organiser Simon Turner felt it was time to do something to help other people with similar conditions.

Top Of The Punks is a 16 track compilation album featuring artists such as Stiff Little Fingers, Angelic Upstarts and The Defects as well as other established bands and grass roots acts.

All proceeds will be directed to the mental health charity Mind.

Simon went on to say; “Mental health issues are all around us. I don’t know single person who hasn’t been touched by its effects. This is my modest way of supporting an amazing charity that helps those who need it.”


Just 400 limited action cd’s will be produced, made available from selected independent record stores and the contributing artists. The release will be available to download and stream from the usual services.

To support the release, an all-day launch event will be held at The Bear, Northampton, the towns dedicated punk venue on Saturday 17th June 2017 and many of the contributing acts to the album will be performing.

Inspiration for the logo and sleeve design takes a lead from the legendary Top Of The Pops album covers, which are iconic pieces from music history.

The project is being entirely crowdfunded from supporters, with additional assistance from Marshall Amplification, Cherry Red Records, The Bear, Super Cool Central, Duplion Multimedia and Merland Copying Services.


Full album line up:

Stiff Little Fingers / Angelic Upstarts / The Defects / Subculture / 5 Go Mad / Apple Shift Seven / Wreck-Age / Wake The City / Knock Off / Born To Destruct / Jonny And The Mental Breakdowns / RT-Zed / The Schamakazi Pilot / Hazard / UK Vomit / Spring Park.
