After getting home at 2am from the second night of Polite Riot (thanks Thameslink for your rubbish new timetable), Emma and I found ourselves back on the train heading to the New Cross Inn at 11am. The music didn't start until after 3pm but they were showing the football and there was no way I was going to miss England's 6-1 demolition of Panama. There were a few people already gathered when we arrived at the pub for the match including some of the bands playing today. When we arrived the first thing that caught our eye was the day's headline act A Wilhelm Scream's impressive merch set up. Something we're not used to seeing at the New Cross Inn. The match finished, England won and the pub was quickly transformed from pub to punk venue just by taking the benches outside.
