You just tried to piss on someone who doesn't give a euphemism in favour of someone who only appears to remind us it's her anniversary i.e.does give a euphemism.
Get consistent kid.Knock off making it up as you go along.Punks are consistent.
This thread was initially mostly an expression of frustration re: A2K. Where did the punks go? Why am I surrounded by bloody hippies?
Its funny how much of the 1977 punk, if you listen to it now, seems more like a natural progression/evolution from good old rock'n'roll - a return to that good tradition after the boring hippie and concept album intermezzos - than like any shocker musical revolution.
The way Siouxie screamed like, well, a banshee on those first Peel Sessions - or the girls of X-Ray Spex... And Never Mind the Bollocks still does sound totally different. You keep bumping against those comments by some literary or reviewer git who goes, "well of course we all voted Bollocks best album of the year at the time, but you cant imagine anyone actually still listening to it for fun ..." talk for youself, poser!
and I want my love beads back too.
Hey, where's everybody running to?
Re: trying to recapture fleeting youth ... its worse than that. See, I was born in '71, so in the year Brit punk went big I was ... 6. I'm grasping back at the youth of the generation before me - how pathetic can you get! To when the yuppies hadnt fouled everything up, them and the hippies-turned-bobos..
Yeah. We need a ruling.
Is there a difference in punks and goths, and if so, what is it?
my age exempts me from the above catagories, are all we "beats" dead?
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,
who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities contemplating jazz,
