second Southend Punk Reunion Gathering took place on Saturday December
30th 2006 and was another success. Giacomino Parkinson of Southend
Sites and The Dim Locator took some great shots of the evening - see
the above galleries for the photographs.
Punks both past and present and from all eras attended - including known
representatives from such bands as The Sickies, The Spurts and The School
Bullies, The Kronstadt Uprising, The Bleeding Pyles, The Sinyx, Autumn
Poison and The Stripey Zebras.
On the night The Get, The Convicted, Retrospex , The Psychopaths, The
Doomed, The Vulture Squadron and Nuclear Anarchy PLC all performed to
an enthusiastic crowd, and many people managed to reconnect again to the
source and catch up on the lost years.
Apologies to anyone whom we didn't manage to make contact with, or photograph
at the event.
Enjoy the Galleries - More events will be planned.
Thanks to Andi Schurer, Red and crew for pulling this event together,
and I'd again like to extend my gratitude and thanks to all of you whom
told me how much they have enjoyed the website - Southendpunk.com - it's
made all the late nights and long hours worthwhile.

get in touch also and I'll remove it)
Something we never had back in the day, but we do now, is You Tube, and
