    People think of the Stranglers and Ian Dury/Blockheads as punk. Neither of them were musically but they had a punk ethos and were undoubtedly a part of that scene.

    They were never really punk. They rode that wave for a bit though.

    I think The Raven is my favorite album of theirs.

    I think punk was just a name

    Some of the heavy riffing by the stranglers , undertones , pistols .....bodies for example, as the song starts , stiff little fingers etc were straight out of the rock 🤘 locker

    Killing Joke were popular with the punks late on the scene but a lot of heavy rocks fans like myself loved Killing Joke

    Some people have said that the New York Dolls were the first punk band but you could go back as far as Syd Barrett and early Who/Stooges.

    I'd say you can go back further than that - this is a punk record as far as I'm concerned;-



    Punk is an attitude I think, but whatever it is and whether the bands referred to above were punk or not, they were like a breath of fresh air in the mid to late seventies - the world had heard more than enough from pompous prog rock bands by then.

    Best punk band I ever saw. Top Rank a few months before Owen died.

    Babylon's Burning
    Jah War
    In a Rut

    Classics in my eyes

    Like the way jj burnel went off on one instead of just following the drums

    Phil Lynott was great for doing that , leading the long

    Labels are arbitrary really. Sniffin' Glue fanzine in the 70s gave the following advice on how to create punk which was, I think: Steal a guitar, learn three chords, form a band.

    But you can progress from that in many directions and still retain the original spirit.

    Re: Punk ? Just a great rock band

    Brilliant classic track, even though I had to watch 5 seconds of Vic Reeves promoting B&Q Gardener of the year before it started.

    I am a lover of all music but mostly a rock and metal fan

    I always found UK punk a bit tinny with no bottom end

    Apart from GBH , Discharge , Conflict

    999 , UK subs did not have a powerful enough sound to me

    But some of the American punk , especially the dead Kennedys and later minor threat and black flag and fugazi were loved by us rockers because of the heavy guitar work

    People can place bands in any genre they want but if they are loud and are driven by guitars then that will do for me
