We are now collecting submissions for our Before They Were Stars Feature. If your band has material that has never been heard, is incredibly old or extremely rare, we'd like to hear and potentially feature it. But please keep in mind - we're looking for relatively well-known bands. If you think you've got something, feel free to send it to julia.conny@absolutepunk.net.

When Spitalfield hung up their coats in 2007, they left us with the early days collectible, Everything 1998-2002. Not on that album was "Capture The Moment", a song that was originally released as the title track of the band's very first EP. Mark Rose was kind enough to give us the song for you reminiscent folk; go ahead and stream it in the replies. Ok, and yes, we kind of miss Spitalfield.
