This fourth installment of MRR Remote Radio comes from Vincent Troplain, a veteran of the Rouen, France scene and all-round oracle of the last 30 years of French punk, hardcore and Oi! Vincent runs the label/distro Emergence Records and hosts his own show, Des Lendemains Qui Déchantent (Desperate Tomorrows), on Radio Campus Rouen. Tune in as he takes our collective hand and guides us through French punk, from the early ’80s to the present day.

Join Luke and Henry from the Wallaby Beat record label and blog for this edition of MRR Remote Radio as they ramble about the greatest misfires, nonentities and unfindables of Australian punk from 1976-’84. It’s an hour of rare records, cassette-only tracks, unreleased songs and archival recordings punctuated by brief bursts of your hosts’ OCD.
