broad church.

I own very little punk. I tire of it. I own a load of compilations and like single tracks by artists but that's no reason to put Alternative TV in my top five.
These are the "punk" artists i listen to most.


And The Buzzcocks.

BCB doesn’t talk about Punk much does it?
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

No -although we used to. I remember a number of lengthy Pistols threads that, much like the band itself, were very lively and disruptive; they really used to divide.
I guess the reason we don't talk about it as much is we're all getting older. Punk's one of those things that belong to your youth in many ways -it's not really current to our lives now, although I'm sure now I've said that, that there'll be a load of old punks to tell us they regularly have Discharge as a soundtrack when they're making their toast in the morning!

Eh? A lot of us grew up with punk you dirty rotter.
It was a really important formative cultural influence for me.

so this idea that we're too old to discuss it - we were too old back then! it wasn't 'current' in 2004 either

I still listen to Punk all the time. Just about every day i'll play an album or some tracks by some UK, US or Aussie punk bands. The notion that age has anything to do with it is just not true for me.

That, my endearingly direct friend, is beside the point. The idea that pop or punk or whatever has some kind of age limitation to liking it is something that i strongly disagree with, because i see many people around my age who like punk and such still too.

Nah, I’m with you. What I find is that I can go for months without any Punk listening then come back refreshed for a trip down the YouTube rabbit hole.

Same here. And because it's actually a deceptively broad genre, i'll have periods where i'll listen a lot to Ramones, but then later on it'll be Descendents or X-ray Specs or Refused.
