Following on from my pre punk mix, here is a selection based on the early UK punk bands who recorded from 1976 onwards. It was an exciting time to be in London and hopefully this mix helps share some of the excitement. This time round, I don't have to have green spikey hair! Sorry if I have missed off bands you think should be here. It may be that I have forgotten a name or two, it was a long time ago, and I ewas not sober at the time. In other cases, such as The Boomtown Rats say, the ommission was deliberate. Anyway, enjoy!

Track 0 from Damned Damned Damned
Length: 00:02:43
Year: 0000
Track Description:
This has to be the first song on the mix, because receieved opinion at the time had it that this was the first true British punk single released on Stiff Records.There were those who said that punk died as soon as this record came out, that the idea of punk associating itself to the record industry defeated the purpose. There were others like me who thought it was just a great record. I saw the Damned play many times, but Captain Sensibles pencahnt for playing on stage naked got tired very quickly!

Sham used to sing "If the kids are united, they will never be divided!" Well, a lot of people, not just punks, thought that George Davies was innocent of the crimes he was in prison for. There was graffitti all over London, and his supporters cut up Lords Cricket ground in protest. As I recall, it turned out he was guilty, but I may be wrong about that!
