I remember the first time I saw NoMeansNo back in, I think it was...1987? They were opening for D.O.A., and we'd never heard of 'em. When they got on stage, one of the guys looked just like our friend Ron's dad (an executive at Union Carbide, oddly enough), so we (being obnoxious brats) started shouting, "DAD! DAD!"

I know now that they probably thought we were shouting song requests, though it might've been their first time in Chicago and it left them wondering, "how do they know our songs?"

X Ray Spex are every bit as New Wave as Ultravox. Oh Bondage, Up Yours! is the only punk thing they ever recorded, and it isn't all that good.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

mash up Fri, December 26, 2003 - 4:20 PM by mash up

i disagree totally, first 3 ultravox albums with john foxx are very much punk albums especially ha ha i said in the british invasion thread, to me punk has always been about an attitude not a fashion. if you start following the fashion, you're becoming the antithesis of 'punk'. um 'the great rock n roll swindle'? 'cash from chaos'? ;]
'buy a new one when the old one's worn, everybody's gotta have a uniform'!

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Mike-O Sat, December 27, 2003 - 5:05 AM by Mike-O

Sorry bro. I've been listening to Ultravox for over 20 years. THere isn't an album of theirs I haven't heard. Ultravox, Ha! Ha! Ha!, and Systems of Romance were all New Wave/New Romantic records. There was no DIY ethic, and all they did was strive for Bowie-ness.

We're not talking about what people wear, we're talking about their ethic, music, and politic.

If it were DIY and Ultrravox weren't aiming to chart a single right from the get-go, I'd agree. But they weren't, and they were. So, un-punk.

I agree about the new DIY techno. I've been saying for years now that it took over where punk left off.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Dan Wed, December 31, 2003 - 10:55 AM by Dan

Have to disagree with you about X Ray Spex. I was an LA punk and fan of British punk in the late '70's, and X Ray Spex were considered punk, not new wave then. It's revisionist history to re-label them new wave now.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Chiki-Tita Thu, January 1, 2004 - 12:03 AM by Chiki-Tita

X-Ray Spex are indeed punk rock. Perhaps compared to the newer hardcore stuff their Saxaphone laden music and dayglo clothes seem more new wave, but back in the early eighties everyone I knew considered them punk. Don't forget punk wasn't so commercial back then. The punk rock bar was lower. Today a blue mohawk hardly gets a second glance, but back in the seventies a few strands of pink in your hair made you some kind of freak.
If X-Ray Spex came out today would they be considered punk rock? Probably not. But neither would the Ramones, the Clash, X or a lot of other bands. And the fact is X-Ray Spex didn't come out today, they came out in the seventies and they will remain part of punk rock's early history.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Mike-O Thu, January 1, 2004 - 5:47 AM by Mike-O

It's not revisionist in the slightest. They had one song that could be considered "punk rock." Which doesn't make them a punk band. Not in politic or DIY philosophy. When I heard "Oh Bondage, Up Yours" I also mistakenly believed they were a punk band. When I heard the rest of Germ Free Adolescents, I realized the truth.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Chiki-Tita Thu, January 1, 2004 - 12:13 PM by Chiki-Tita

I think you might want to listen to that album one more time. This time listen to the lyrics. Almost every song on the album was a social/political commentary. The songs are anti-consummerism, anti-stautus-quo, anti-establishment and feministic in nature. "Genetic Engineering"




You don't think this is a political song? It is exactly what is going on today. Our scientists and governments are homoginizing everything. Our fruits and vegetables, our meat and produce, it all has to be the biggest and best. And if Europe doesn't want bio-engineered food well then fuck them! Let's bomb them too. It is all crazy and where does it end? This is exactly what Poly Styrene was singing about.
And "The Day the World Turned DayGlo", you think a song about the world getting blown up isn't political?
And songs like "I Can't Do Anything", "Warrior In Woolworths" and "Artificial" address the apathy and hopelessness of a generation of England's youth.
"Identity", "Germ Free Adolescents" and "I Am A Poseur" said "don't be part of the machine. Don't listen to the media." They chastised dull unquestioned consumerism.
And "I Live Off You" is a great commentary on social stratification.
Having said this, I am very curious what it is about "Oh Bondage, Up Yours" that you find so much more punk than the songs I just mentioned?

Mike-O Thu, January 1, 2004 - 1:00 PM by Mike-O

It's New Years' Day, I don't feel like arguing.

No one will ever convince me that that poor representation of even a New Wave band was punk rock.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Chiki-Tita Thu, January 1, 2004 - 10:12 PM by Chiki-Tita

Not to keep flogging a dead horse, if "no one will ever convince" you, then it is pointless to keep the debate going, but I do feel it is necessary to counterpoint since you did say my logic would put Pearl Jam in the punk category. I have no choice but to defend myself. If you read my earlier post I did say, or at least alluded to, the idea that X-Ray Spex were punk in the context of the time ("If they came out today would they be considered punk? Probably not.") X-Ray Spex were part of an era. Their look, their music, their message, is all representative of late seventies British punk. The punks of that era consider the band punk. If you don't that is revisionist.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Mike-O Fri, January 2, 2004 - 4:53 AM by Mike-O

I don't know anyone that came up in the late 70s/early 80s in the UK that considers X Ray Spex "punk." And we're talking about a plethora of people from Dublin to Glasgow to Brighton.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Chiki-Tita Sat, January 3, 2004 - 12:22 AM by Chiki-Tita

I didn't miss it. You didn't say it. I read where it said they were "from" the UK. (Okay that's one of those samantics things, a technicality really but I couldn't tell where you met these Brits).
Since I am a fiery, bossy Leo, I just have to make this one last argument. I have spent a bit of time in London (Been there 4 times and spent a summer taking classes at the University of London). And though I didn't meet a whole "Plethora" of early British punks, I did talk to some that I met at record fairs and record stores. I did have quite a few conversations with the ones I met regarding X-Ray Spex, because at the time the reason I was going to the record fairs and stores was to replace that album. This was about seven or eight years ago, before I was computer proficient and found out you could find most things on e-bay. Anyway, my brother had stole my original version I had bought in the early eighties so I wanted to replace it. Anyway, my point is, these old fart punkers (even older than you and me) refered to X-Ray Spex as punk. As do I. As did all my friends long ago when we were just wee little punkers. So the bottom line is, I am flogging a dead fucking horse and neither of us is ever going to agree with the other because appearantly we are both hard-headed and everyone, including me, is probably tired of this stupid pointless debate. So I'll just agree to disagree.

Excellent lists rockers. I particularly enjoyed Sydney's. Classics like the Buzzcocks, the Pistols, and the Dead Kennedys are almost all I listen to these days. I'd give my own list, but it looks like most of the important tracks have been covered. Plus, there's so much value placed on history in the Punk community, that I would be too torn between songs I love for the way they sound and songs/bands I love for their signifigance to the Punk movement.

Re: REAL Punk Rock chart

Kenny Sun, February 1, 2004 - 1:56 AM by Kenny

If X-Ray Spex is not considered a punk band, considering all the variety that was going on in those days, then all the clones like Bikini Kill and that ilk also have to drop off the list, right? I'll get to my top 10+ later, but Germ-Free Adolescence is definitely on it. Probably I Live Off You as well.

Fuck, these lists are all great. Nice to see some folks still know what real punk is/was. But nobody seems to have mentioned the Electric Eels - Agitated, Cyclotron or Jaguar Ride. Also, I didn't notice anyone mentioning the mighty Pagans - Anything by the Pagans.
