Good heavens, why?

I was 3 years old, living with highbrow hippies in San Antonio in 1977. I know nothing of the subject, so I’m not averse to giving the Pistols their due.

Altho' I quite like 'There Ain't No Sanity Clause'


The first album is probably the purest punk album, in reality. They never got close to it again, but that 30 minutes is still incendiary and, in New Rose, they really did nail one of the truly magnificent punk classics.


Blimey!!!

I like The Damned and I think early Damned could bring a chaotic sense of fun to the party, but they were less exciting than their peers because they didn't have so much of the shock of the new. They were closer than the other bands to a more traditional pre-punk mainstream rock (which is why Yomp liked them so much of course) with Sensible straining at the leash to do another guitar solo and Scabies wanting to do his Moon impression.

You won’t find anyone north of Watford with a good word to say about them. Witless bovver boys.

Of course, Sensible wasn't playing the guitar in the early Damned days, but I'm sure Brian James will forgive your oversight.

I doubt you could find anyone north of Watford lucid enough to have an opinion.

Jesus. This is why this topic should never be discussed.

"you really had to be there...really going on...relevant as Abba...on the ground...pale imitations...real thing...officially declared it dead..." This is like dialogue from a movie.

It makes me never want to have an authentic experience again in my life.

No. Are you a famous parodist of "you had to be there, man" types?

Quickly, everyone while grumpy old Grampy tells us all about the night he went to the 100 Club during the Punk or possibly even the Punic War for about the millionth time.

Surely there is no such thing as an “authentic experience.” I’d be curious to learn about an inauthentic experience, it sounds like a lot of fun!
