I've got quite an eclectic taste in music but I'll always be a Punk at heart.
Got into it when my brother brought The Bollocks album home followed by The Clash album.

Never saw The Clash and only saw The Sex Pistols in '96 on The Filthy Lucre Tour - I was too young back in the day, I was 11 or 12 back in 76/77.

Soon got into SLF - seen them over a dozen times live - and loved The Angelic Upstarts who I've also seen quite few times.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Oi scene and have some big mates involved in it even now.

I even had a bit of time for the Anarcho bands like Crass, Zounds, Flux of Pink Indians etc.

Punk shaped my whole perspective and attitude to life in general.

Seen literally hundreds of punk bands of all types live.
I have quite a few mates who play in bands now and are getting a certain amount of recognition on the scene.

Some good mates of mine, formed in '77.
This recording is from about '81 and not the best sound quality but you get the raw feeling.
They still do one or two gigs a year.....great guys.




Got to finish with the two greatest songs of all time:

Not everyone's cup of tea but I loved Crass and the Anarcho-Punk scene.







There's stories behind all these songs and reasons why I have a particular liking for them but I don't want to bore the tits off everyone so I'll just let them speak for themselves.

Bollocks to it, some more Anarcho stuff;

One of the greatest EP's ever includes Subvert; one of my all time favourite songs.



I remember when this was first released and about 10 or so of us going into a small record shop and it was playing, they all turned round and said 'what's this #e?'....except me and one other lad who looked at each other and said 'this is #ing brilliant!'.



Just to show that the old guard can still deliver, this was recorded just a few years ago.

I bought "Staircase" on my first trip to Zed Records (the only import record store for miles). I went back the next day and bought the full LP "The Scream". 17yr old mind blown -

I can't think about anything other than my time in High School...there was a kid named Stuart and we'd quote this incessantly to him.
