    Classic pre-punk... Saw them at CBGB back in '80something. A lot of bands at the time went after that look/sound/attitude, which started as sort of garage rock, and morphed into early glam, with David Johansen and most of the rest of the band cross dressing for shows. Really out there stuff for the time. Then along came the Ramones, who started out like the rest, even going for a glam look for their first couple shows, but quickly found their own ground, and really launched the American punk scene as we know it today. The New York Dolls stayed the course, along with Television and a few other smaller East Coast punk rock bands, influencing countless modern punk bands, and became legendary on their own, while bands like Blondie and the Talking Heads started the New Wave sound, with bands like Devo and the B-52 going down that road, too. The British punk scene exploded simultaneously (Sex Pistols, Clash...), while here in the US, punk bands sprung up in the midwest (Husker Du, Iggy Pop/Stooges) and California (Agent Orange, Minor Threat, Suicidal Tendencies...).

    Fun times...

    Not exactly punk, but a very good band in my opinion. I love how loud and aggressive punk is, but I also love very dynamic music as well. This is a good middle ground.

    yea man, love there stuff. For the longest time I tried to like punk but I always got bored. I like classic rock like pink Floyd and led zeppelin but It was always to, I don't now, fancy or whatever. Then I found all these alternative bands from the 80s and 90s like dinosaur jr, sonic youth, mudhoney, radiohead, and of course nirvana and just fell in love. It had that aggressive punk attitude but you could also tell that the bands took there art seriously. Here's some more.

    Just read an article about punk second division stalwarts, The Vibrators. Front man Ian Knox references a gig from January '77 where they shared the bill with Sex Pistols and Johnny Thunder's Heartbreakers. What a raucous spectacle that must have been. Who wouldn't want to take in that slice of sonic glory?

    Although this was an all-time, for the history books type legendary gig; I'll bet at the time less than 100 people were there to witness the musical confrontation that ensued. Today the number of people to claim to have been there is probably ten times that many!

    I was fortunate enough to have travelled through London during "The Summer of Hate". What a spectacle. Seeing that scene first hand blew my 16 year old mind. I never fully recovered my innocence and thankfully neither has music! That initial crazed tremor felt throughout the music business is still pulsing today!

    Gabba Gabba Hey!
