Punks....

.....might be of a bit of interest to some of those on my FL.

Turning Punk And Disorderly (BBC News Online; Thursday 30th March 2006)

Must admit I didn't realise it was the 30th anniversary of the Punk movement.

The Sex Pistols first ever gig was the day the world turned day-glo... I'm sure some would dispute that, but it's as good and pointless a fact as any with regard to punk.

it is indeed, and it's quite scary too - 30 years FFS! I remember it was the 10th anniversary when I got into it at the tender age of 15, and it feels like yesterday...

Still, it should be celebrated; no matter what poncey goths people say, or how much (some of the) original bands in the scene sold out or changed afterwards, it changed music forever and without it pretty much none of the subsequent alternative music (yes, and that includes goths, in fact especially goth, much to the chagrin of some elements in the scene) would have existed.

And some of the bands (not all admittedly, not even the majority probably but still) are still every bit as relevant today as they were then.

Punx not dead! ;-)

It is 30 years for Brit punk, and even more for the NYC scene. It's frightening that most of the Ramones are dead but the Rolling Stones are still playing.

Thanks for the link. I hadn't realized Penetration had a website and had started playing out again. Nice if you live in the UK I guess!

Eee lad, some of us are owd enough to remember it, by 'eck!

Daft thing is it's only in the last few years that I realise how much I like it. In fact I'm off to put some Ruts on...
