I’ve read at several places that this blog focus on Euro punk. If you go through the post you’ll find that 80% of it is american stuff. That’s just cause it happens to mirror my taste. I think american punk/hc 1975-1984 is the shit. No other country produced so many unique sounding bands and it probably has to do with the yankees proudly polished individualism. Thank god for that! No thanks to so many other stuff that’s not so good with their politics and corporate america. But you know that that has been talked about so many times and all you real punx know what you shall think and believe in and that’s that USA is really the big Satan. Nothing good can come out of that country right. I say USA any day! Do I? No not really.
So I try to balance up the site country wise a little bit now and then. UK had of course it’s big share of fantastic bands. Especially the 1979 era when the punk has gone more pop. No doubt that’s my favorite era. If I shall boil down my taste a little bit the pop wins me over everyday and any day. And what has all this rambling to do anything with UK’s The Features? Probably nothing. But who cares? I am punx! And as the true punx I am I give you, for FREE(every punx like it free), two great cuts from the golden punk year of 1977.
