so I like various stuff, like Bad Brains, The Clash, so on. I also like various others, and Refused, and I have a soft spot for NOFX this week. A mate introduced me to Propagandhi this week, which i’m really digging. so who do YOU rate in punk? If you say venetian snares you get a slap
the clash (offcourse), bad religion (offcourse), rancid, millencolin, dead kennedys, misfits, strebers, ridder sjangseløs, penetration, stiff little fingers,
THE STRANGLERS, x-ray spex, the damned, sublime, toy dolls (at times), bøyen beng.
the clash was actually the first group i started collecting albums from
the first album i got was give’m enough rope. a sweet start for a young punk. lol.
minor threat, dead kennedys, NOFX, refused, at the drive in (if they count as punk - fuck it if refused count i’m having them and…) fugazi, big black, nation of ulyesses, melvins - and most of the rest mentioned above with one major exception -NO FUCKING SKA PUNK
damn - i was supposed to see them last saturday but had to dj the night before and didn’t end up going to bed till 10am and didn’t get back to bristol until after the show - saw them in liverpool a few years back though - fucking awesome - hope you enjyed the gig
I started off as a huge Clash fan (as evident from my nick ), I still listen to most of the original '76-'77 bands (Buzzcocks, The Boys, The Members, The Vibrators, etc…)
after that, it’s worth to give a listen to the post-punk bands from '78 onwards, Joy Division, Magazine, Gang Of Four, Siouxsie, Killing Joke…there was an amazing outbreak of creativity following Punk during the early 80s. This might be helpful: Rip It Up And Start Again
