    Killing Joke were often called proto metal for their influence on the industrial heavy scene for bands like ministry , prong , fear factory

    Loaded is an astonishing album when you consider its release date of 1970 , previous to that they release White light / White Heat in 68 and were playing whatever you want to call it from 1965 , if you look at the charts at that time you quickly realise how progressive , avant-garde , punk attituded , they were ..

    Their music transcends genre. But they obviously started off in the London punk scene. They were young. They dressed like punks. The Stranglers were older, more musical and had formed in 74 or 75 I think. What does it matter? I remember reading an interview in one of the music papers where Paul Weller after being asked if the Jam were a mod band said something like "we're a punk band, we came in with it and we're sticking with it". Elizabeth Fraser had a (later removed) "Sid Vicious" tattoo on her arm.

    Cocteau Twins now they had a very complex layered guitar sound

    Indie , now that's another one

    Smashing Pumpkins were liked by a mate of mine who said he hated heavy rock but some of the stuff they came out with was pure led zep

    They were more in common with kerrang or sounds than the NME or Melody Maker

    .the brutal truth is that Malcolm stopped the music..asked aggressively 'who threw that"..my mate sad "me"..Owen said " come up here"..my mate started to climb onto the stage and Owen backed off to the back of the stage and the bouncers moved towards my mate...so he jumped back into the crowd..Owen called him a **** and went straight into In a Rut..pure theatre... loved it.

    The punk era in my view was a vehicle for new music sound /attitude , a lot of bands developed from that genre the biggest example in my view were the Clash who were an exceptional band . Same with Weller who developed into some many other music genre when you consider his journey from the Jam into the Style Council and finally into his solo career

    I must agree with this. It's not a very clever thing to boast about.

    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.
    Bought that when released I think it was 1965, no one knew what it was about, but great to dance to.
