The Clash/Joe Strummer - Bank Robber + anything else

Malcolm McClaren - influence more than music

Stiff Little Fingers - At The Edge

The Dead Kennedys + Jello Biafra

The Small Faces - the grandfathers of rock.

For those that have never done it; listen to "You need loving" from their first album ('65?) and then listen to "Whole lotta love". Whoa, that's uncanny ;-)

If Willie Dixon had heard "You need loving" perhaps he might have sued the Small Faces instead...

Thats me, Nearly mid thirties. I would say aging punk rather than ex.

edit: I notice all but one of those bands are British - what's up with that

Is that aimed at me?
If so, everyone knows british bands are best ;oP
I just like the dead kennedys and jello biafra for their balls when it comes to highlighting various world issues. I like the music too.

Ska_D: I assumed right, lol.

I'm also from that almost-35 generation where I was just a bit too young to see the Pistols live. Kennedys were cool, but I like LARD more.

Rooting through my vinyl collection, you'd find 90% of it is British, I guess it was just that era and the kind of things that were going on in pop, punk & new wave... from Siouxie to New Order, I think the only North American bands I was really "in to" were the Ramones and Blondie.

20 years earlier it would have been the opposite, in the 60s all the good stuff was coming out of California & Motown

Bad Religion : Do What You Want

I am too young to really have experienced many of the other bands noted on the list. Rock, in any of its forms, must be appreciated live...and album just won't do. Bad Religion truly rocked.

Absolutey, LARD are another very good band from the alternative tentacles label. Jello Biafra again.

I suppose we should give some credit to American Rock music.

Hooray! and thanks ever so much for Jon Bon Jovi ;OP

My old band toured with the Ramones about 10 years ago before the sad deaths of most of the members.

Well done on your deductive skills you have me down to a tee.

They still rock! Along with Rancid and NOFX to name a couple of others.

ska_:
hold the phone.
what was your "old band"?

I'm an ex-musician myself (that was my "job" for most of the 90s), but never got opening gigs for any big names. Well, unless you count 54-40 (mediocre pop), and the Barenaked Ladies (back when they were unknown Toronto buskers).

I have played in many different bands. Primarily I am a drummer. I was in a band called 'KonKave' that did the uk stuff with the ramones. It was that or 'Mr Black' I cant remember but we played with Nirvana and Green Day as well. The Nirvana gig was years ago before anyone had heard of them. I was in an 8 piece ska/punk band for a few years til about a year ago but that was hard work. I now play the bass in a 3 piece with a lot of Fugazi influence. I also play stand in guitar in a local small ska band. I love Ska.

Judge Dread

Lol; there's a name from the past. The Judge used to own a martial arts shop in Stroud, Kent - a couple of doors down from the 2nd hand record shop I used to spend all day in, on my day off. He used to come in frequently.

We'd also see him do performances at some of the night clubs around Kent. This was, oh, (has to think back...) early eighties.

Mind you I suppose that's a bit like; "my mate's second cousin's uncle used to drink with someone in the pub that used to go to school with blah..." ;-)
