SLF were great and Inflamable Material is a classic, they got all prima donnaish on the next tour and walked off stage because they were being gobbed at. At the time we labelled them as poseurs and sell outs 😆 I dont think I would want to be gobbed at and would of walked off stage as well.

been there, done that. stayed on stage
c1984, Selby, North Yorkshire. I’m not sure Selby had ever seen a post-punk band at the time (you might describe the look we had as “goth” but I think it was before the term “goth” had made it out of London).
Anyway, imagine 120 young farmers & miners, letting their hair down to what they thought was a “Punk” band…
Paul’s first mistake was playing the opening riff to Pretty Vacant – to wind them up, it wasn’t even in the set. well that was it. not just gobbing, but beer glasses too.
nowhere to go so we stayed put. Paul did have to find an alternative fingering for the A chord…

I remember seeing Snuff at the Kennington cricketer they managed to do a full cover of “i think were alone now” in about 11 seconds.
and another under appreciaed band

My era musically although I don’t consider Undertones in particular a punk band although there was plenty of spitting at their gigs. Clash or Stranglers were not full on punk either. SLF and Alternative Ulster yes. Progues in their original guise where excellent, their support “The Men they couldn’t hang” where pretty rough. I recall a band called Penetration with some pretty punk material.
“Best Punk Song” would have to be something fairly underground from a band who never had a proper contract or even made a record, otherwise it’s too conformist.Posted 5 years ago
