Punk 'n' Disorderly
My elder cousins were Gen 1 Punks from London & Brighton. At the age of 10 they introduced me to the music of The Ramones, Chelsea, 999, The Lurkers, Suicide, UK Subs, Chron Gen, The Stranglers, The Damned, The Sex Pistols, X-Ray Spex and so many more Punk Bands. My course was set.
Despite also loving Rock & Metal, in my heart and soul I've always been an undiluted Punk, it's just genetic to me. I really 'came into my own' when the UK82 scene exploded – Discharge, Crass, Subhumans, Zounds, GBH, Exploited, Oi Polloi, The Restarts, Aus Rotten, Drongo's For Europe. America heroes such as Poison Idea, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, Bad Brains, The Dead Kennedy's … all set a fire in my heart!
I love all the sounds, styles, and sub genres of Punk & Hardcore … from Anrcho to NYHC, from Celtic Folk Punk to KrishnaCore, from Post Punk to Psychobilly, from Fastcore to Class Of '77 … it's all just amazing, it's mostly the soundtrack to my life – and I intend to grow old disgracefully because of it! Oi Oi! Up The Punx!
