At my brother's wedding on Saturday there was a covers band playing who did ska, punk and 60s. We were dancing all night, but the surge to the dance floor when they played Pretty Vacant had no less of an energy than when I first heard it and I'm sure I say the same of everyone else who got up to dance.
I very rarely listen to the album but when I do it's not because I want to appreciate it, but because it makes me feel like I could knock down a brick wall just by looking at it and there are times when I love feeling like that. To that end it has lost none of the magic.

Unlike Ray (and The Bear) the album floored me completely on first listen and just got better every time I listened to it.
Oddly, that's how I remember virtually everyone else who had liked the singles being about it as well.
How old were you in 1977, DD? Did you buy into punk as anything other than a genre of music?
15 Rayge.... Yeah I got the ethos... never got into the dress etc myself, but got the drive of 'the movement'....
