October, 2022

Welcome to AMMP for October, November and December 2022. Mark E. Smith’s lyrics and set lists have been purchased by locals as part of an archive. PJ Harvey has a new box set. Members of Squeeze and The Cars are collaborating. Graham Coxon has provided playlist inspiration ahead of his autobiography release. Who fans have a rare Moon-Entwistle track to collect – and some jewellery. And Happy Birthday to Johnny Ramone, Dave Vanian and Lux Interior. You’ll find Lux’s playlist here too.
