Punk

It was great. Breathed a new life into British music just as it was about to disappear up it's own arse. But it wasn't always the greatest in terms of quality. In an effort to keep up with the changing musical landscape, all sorts of bands got records out when most of them really had no right, being basically half a step away from pub rock. Dare I say, even the Sex Pistols weren't actually that good musically, but managed to get away with it.
Well you can't say that about everyone around at the time.

I'm actually off to see The Blockheads in Burnley on Wednesday then The Buzzcocks in Preston on Sunday. Talk about reliving my youth ...
