    Fancy Rosy, after finding the track I posted by accident while listening to punk on 'tube.
  2. I really must re kindle my stereo with some old 76 punk compilation albums ...pretty damn rare now .
    One of my favourites is Farewell To The Roxy album just before the Roxy was closed down .
    Think the club was around covent Garden .
    The other punk venue where they all went after the Roxy was closed was The Vortex on Wardour St .

    I have a Live At The Vortex album which is well rare ....that closed after a short space of time REAL punk only lasted 2 years . The Clash , Stranglers , Police ...Good but not punk . The Whizz infused heads of the early boys was the cause of the incredible drum beat speed .

    Depends what you call punk, I think it never really died in terms of "anything goes musically". All that high speed thrashing? Never really appealed to me. :)
  4. The variation of it increases as time goes on . I know what you mean about the thrashing , but providing it was tight and accurate i liked it . The hippys loathed it ...but that was the purpose cheap and cheerful and not to be taken seriously .

  11. I’ve only known about this wonderful lady for a matter of weeks, but the joy she puts over when she plays is so infectious……

    She does a lot of ELP covers too for you Prog fans out there.

  14. Reminded me of Vlad, hopefully it will not be long. He has stolen the grim reapers scythe.

    Those Yanks, they have always such high standards of musicianship and still do. The competition over there, the sheer organisation, practice, arranging, producing - if you don't have it you get buried. Over here it's more about emotion - quite sloppy really but it's what we're good at and don't have that competitiveness which gives us a different edge.
    More Yanks laying it down! Don't really "like" this but I do admire it. :)

  16. Oh I like that a lot! Reminds me of the Brecker Brothers. I know what you mean about that kind of almost striving for perfection in performance and sound, which I often find a bit pointless, I like fluffs and bum notes, but this is just so funky and full of joy I love it :D
