Yep, and neither were Television, at least, not after Hell left. Blondie were punkier, and a better band in my experience


Indeed. The New York strain was a different animal altogether. Great in its own way, but nothing to with the neanderthal brutality of English punk. We all know that 99% of punk was rubbish, and for me that is its charm. Have a go mate. Just do whatever you can. It has GOT to be better than brotherhood Man , hasn't it?

None of which were punk bands.

Should have started with the Big Shits ( sept 76) and gone on from there...


But I ended with a big shit so I didn't want to start with one, too.


In truth, it was dire. A pathetic aping of The Lord's Payer. Sad really. But what fun we had, and you should have seen the faces of the people in the audience. Priceless.
