Agree with the above (both) never realy got the punk thing- me too young/ bands were crap, but love Jam/ Feelgood/ Dury and the tracks mentioned above. Are they proper tunes/bands compared to the ‘fashion ‘ of most of the punk bands?Posted 11 years ago
Am 41 by the way swo was around in ’76, both sisters punnks, bro’ was full on glam kid come heavy metaller!
I was brought up with the Constant sound of Weller in my house, shame his latest stuff is so banal.Posted 11 years ago
paulosaxo- do you want to hear the same stuff repeated/rehashed? as weller has changed the tunes have changed, still my no1Posted 11 years ago
Nope, which is why it’s so banal, to me anything post Stanley Road is very samey. He’s still a **** legend though, I just don’t listen to anything after about ’95Posted 11 years ago

Great, I was going to see them when I was about 13, kind of my hometown band..
Whatever happend to R&B meaning this sort of music, seems to mean a very different thing these days.
Mind you I wouldnt have called it New Wave either!!!Posted 11 years ago

So explain “new wave” to me……Posted 11 years ago

Thanks for the flashback…Posted 11 years ago
the daddy of r n b…..
and new wave is a bit like a mix of rock n roll, r n b and a dash of punk… 8)Posted 11 years ago
So not really the Buzzcocks or Undertones then,their early stuff was about as punk as you can get.Cheap gear & recording etc -Spiral Scratch & Teenage Kicks etc……
It was the same then, no one could put their finger on it either,bands who had been punk suddenly became New Wave….It was a bit like the All Mountain,Extreme XC & the like phrases…
In other words marketing b0ll0x by pencil necks……Posted 11 years ago
the buzzcocks and the undertones are or were not punk……Posted 11 years ago
They both changed as they went along but originally they were punk…..
Who started the new wave label,McLaren why,who knows but probably just to make more money knowing him……
As I wrote above it was all just marketing b0ll0x…….Posted 11 years ago
One of my favourites
The Buzzcocks were a punk band in the very beginning as were the Jam and other bands etc etc, because right at the very beginning that was all there was, Punk. It then got sub-divided into Hardcore Punk, Punk, New wave. Bands got catogorised or (like the Jam) rejected Punk for something else. New Wave to me was a more pop orientated Punky style sound.Posted 11 years ago
………because right at the very beginning
Punk pre-dates the Buzzcocks etc.Posted 11 years ago
For my money the Stooges were pretty much the start of it followed by the CBGB bands
