Punk. Yes or No?

Recommended Posts

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....

It's a broad church. 

I saw Me first and the gimme gimme's the other day who claim to be 'punk' and they were awesome.

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,
