Crackedpleasures, do you like the Phantom Chords at all? (Dave Vanian's rockabilly-ish project?)

The trouble with all the taxonomy, is it's belated. Most of the older bands were not trying to fit a stereotype of "punk".. that came later I think...(Mind you I'm old enough to remember the Ramones when they were all alive!)

Some omissions I'm sure should be on any punk band list....The New York Dolls. Television. And later, although I suppose actually psychobilly (although there used to be such a crossover amongst fans)..the Meteors.

Oh, forgot, the Lunachicks used to be one of my favourites (like STP, dickless etc, this long precedes L7, Distillers etc). And mentioning female fronted bands, I always liked X Ray Specs

BTW, Brody Dalle and Josh Homme have a child, I don't know if they are/were actually married....but I think that's a bit more than "hooking up"...I'm trying not to mind, I wish I looked like her :lol: :cry:

I like the early punk. The feeling of being part of it must have been so exciting, knowing that a whole new form of art and subculture was forming, something never done before and you were part of it... That sort of feeling of excitement I miss nowadays, still talented bands but rarely something you hear that sounds unlike nothing done before.


We really didn't consider it as really forming a new subculture, so much as rebelling against the dominant culture. Forming a 'New subculture' was a secondary thing that came along with the general f**ked-uppedness of a culture that was more concerned with Disco, Who shot JR on the TV show 'Dallas', rather than attempt to deal with the fact that humanity was flirting with the very real threat of thermonuclear annihilation. --It's so much easier to not deal with that, and get turned on to the (then) newest Styx album instead.

In another sense, the punk scene in the early days also had a very real immediacy to it due again to the threat of thermonuclear annihilation, and the punk scene was in a way not unlike a wild party on the Titanic as it was sinking, due to the fact that we felt that chances were quite likely that we, and the rest of humanity wouldn't exist at the beginning of the 21st Century.

The punk scene back in the early days was essentially comprised of the freaks and misfits who could not or flat out refused to fit in and process the bulls**t 'Normal Society' had to offer. Now punk is really nothing more that a fashion/music/lifestyle commodity that you can find at any shopping mall. Anybody can get a 'punk haircut' clothes, and fashion accessories and buy themselves into a lifestyle of tamed down, assimilated, processed and conveniently canned rebellion. It's no longer an edgy, intelligent, and subversively dangerous thing, and that sucks.

My collection is running very low on punk right now but i have been listening to a lot of stuff by Peter and The Test Tube Babies, The Exploited, Discharge, GBH, Subhumans and other early 80's stuff recently.

Oh and course The Macc Lads.

Im disheartened to see that no one so far has mentioned the Misfits (old or new)....they were the food of my soul in my youth, and still my go-to music for any occasion.

..and Agnostic Front was not hardcore, they were an Oi/Skin band back in the day. :P

wow. Am I the only one who liked the Jam? If Oasis is the 'new' beatles, then the Jam was the new 'who' (the song on all the CSI's for you younger folks...j/k...;)

Listened to many of these growing up (if you heard what your alternatives were in the late 70s - 'stadium rock', disco, "have you ever been mellow", etc.), you'd see. Actually, the first Pretenders album was a punk album, believe it or not. (Maybe it all went downhill from there...;) I got to see the Dead Kennedy's play in an underground (literally) club in Raleigh back in the day.

Say, I was just looking for my old Jam tapes. They were all right. I thought they were very funny--all that Oy, etc. (I live in New Jersey.) Found the Style Council, though, some of that is oaky but hardly "punk"--whatever that is. I wasn't much into anything stronger than the Clash or the Ramones. Some of my students are Ramones fans. I liked Billy Bragg when he wasn't singing about politics. It's not that i really disagreed with him, I just can't sing about social justice, etc. "Preachy!" as Barney Gumble shouts to Green Day in The Simpsons Movie (I don't know much about Green Day). I spent most of the 80s litenting to Smiths, Elvis Costello, Squeeze, Lloyd Cole, New Order, Depeche, and Everything but the Girl (!). Oh, now I'll be singing Eton Rifles all day! I liked the second Big Audio Dynamite--I know I'm rambling, getting old.
