Punk. Yes or No?

For me it's an emphatic NO! I love all genres of guitar orientated music from AOR to Heavy Metal as you all do, but i've always hated punk. It's strange because I know that there's a fine line between Punk and Sleaze and Sleaze is one of my favourite genres.

Usually no, but sometimes yes. I really have to be in the mood for it. And that's rarely the case. It's like Cuntry.

If we are talking about bands like the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, then the answer is an emphatic NO...ever since I first heard punk, I've always thought that the music was played by people with no musical talent whatsoever...like fingernails on a blackboard....

I certainly remember Missing Link Records, but the Mecca for me was always Metal For Melbourne. Pre drivers license days, so it really was a pilgrimage heading in to the city. There was also a great little place in Coburg called Bluebird Records.

Dave at Bluebird was a legend. We could always rely on him to get in the good stuff.

I remember driving over to Bluebird from where I am from the Eastern Suburbs. I think my usually shop ( Radical Records in Dandenong ) , where I get my stuff had a hard  time finding it. The CD it escape which one it was.

Here's another couple of blasts from the past mate. I'm sure you remember Au Go Go Records. A great little hidden gem. I can't remember the name, but there was a stall at Pipeworks market that was also one of the great sources of our music.

Collector's Corner you thinking of, they went on amalgamate with Missing Link. It didn't last long and they closed shop.

Then there Modern Invasion, which started selling electronic music, before owner started selling  thrash metal.

Pipeworks closed after been busted at there other store,  in South East area for selling bootlegs. Interesting Andrew the owner works for Tax Department.

And yes I remembered Au Go Go,

    • Hey everyone, Johnny Leigh has made it into the final stretch in the new steel panther bassist search, we need everyone to go to this link and vote for him, this is fucking HUGE!  this was the bassist for Young & Fabulous, I just met him but he's one of the coolest guys ive met, and he's a fucking bad ass bass player.   https://steelpantherrocks.com/pages/the-road-to-the-road?fbclid=IwAR0o6fG03T_b3iuJCrqENuets5sX_XkvTHZCy_2ODjhL1xyiHzTK9qMJwC0
    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
