    He rotated in and out of so many bands I can't even remember them all. It's cool to see people still have a place in their hearts for punk. I don't but I would never pee on someone else's pleasures, I think it's great you have those memories! The 70's were an exciting musical time for all types of music and people!

    I listened to all those bands your cuz was in. Punk is a huge part of who I am and how I view the world back in those early days the early 80's for me it was a great community of misfits that did not fit in the world but could get together and make some noise and be accepted for their individuality amongst themselves without anybody blinking an eye.

    To me, punk is a refection of impetuous youthful exuberance.

    In that sense, much of the music cleverly captured the attitude and energy of a younger mindset... something I hope I never completely forget existed in my life...

    ...damn that just made me sound old... o_O

    Music...is an art/science. Its intellectual...and it's visceral. Punk is like the blues. Visceral. Lots of rock and funk falls more in the visceral category. Then there's Coltrane. Thats both. :)

    Dude, I'm glad I've opened such a great musical debate. Believe me, guys, I'm enjoying every which reply.

    Mods and Admins, would you please change the title of the thread to "Punk Rock: let's talk about it"?

    First time I heard Marquee Moon the song I was tripped out thinking I was gonna hear a punk band but it was like the clear evolution of East West by Butterfield Blues Band.

    What a great thread. Great pick me up.


    Glad to see I am not the only one who sees a kinship between blues and punk. I think some older country stuff fits in there too. Gives you a framework within which you can tell you stories and spill your guts.

    I heard the Ramones reference to bubble gum punk.. I saw them open for Non Jovi and Scorpions in the mid 80"s .

    I dig um.

    rap is a direct descendant of the blues... a necessary one too, imo, given the dilution of the blues that blues-rock inflicted on the world..

    In that era Ramones, stooges , I personally consider the Clash punk.
    I listen to a good bit of modern punk of certain styles eg Idles, Fontaines dc, Amyl and the sniffers,

    Yes generally speaking, but I always thought the ramones were lame. Sex Pistols, UK Subs, Cockney Rejects, Discharge, Crass to name a few good bands (all from UK), which then gave rise to the best punk of all from California, mostly but not all from SoCal including TSOL, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys, Adolescents, Christian Death, Fear, Social Distortion (who became sellouts), Bad Religion (also sellouts, but early stuff was great) and many more from the 70s/80s. The hardcore punk scene in the early 80s in California was insane.

    Funny, I love Brit blues, but Brit punk never really got to me. I listened to Sex Pistols a lot and one or two songs I really dug, like Anarchy for instance. But the Pistols never really rang my bell.

    The Ramones, on the other hand, always made me want to pick up a guitar and destroy a building with it.

    Good times.
