You know what else I've listened to tonight?
I'll tell you what.

Black Cat Music
The Murder City Devils
Game Face
The Get Up Kids
88 Fingers Louie

Can we please talk about PUNK ROCK?

Damian and I can't be the only people who like PUNK ROCK.
Admit it.
Go on.

Also, we were discussing Deconstruction festival in Manchester in 1999(?)
I remember Bombshell Rocks played.
Can anyone remember who else played?

I'm going to start a PUNK ROCK band.
Your mum.

Radio Birdman
The Saints

All great Aussie Punk Rock. Every one should own Do The Pop

Other stuff - The Parkinsons were a great cartoon punk band. LP was a bit of nothing - but live they were great.

Bubblegum Splash are the best punk band ever.
It is no coincidence

Hurr.
I remember W.O.R.M.
They had t-shirts that said 'wankers' in place of the Walkers logo.

I'm having a bit of a punk rock revival of late too.
I was demanding Rob download Social Distortion songs yesterday and I bought the Hell on Heels LP (feat, Nikki Corvette!) on Sunday and it's well brilliant.

I'm gonna go get my nose pierced and back-comb my hair.
You just watch me.

Yeah?
Well I gave a bus driver the double finger!
It doesn't get more punk rock than that.

Will you be in my new band?
We need a car in the name.

How about The Chevettes?
Or The Buick 5?

I've got it.

The Ford Escord Estates.

J Church! One of my bands did a split 7" with them last year... we got to play with them the last time they hit Europe, before Lance's illnesses got out of hand. He was one of the nicest folk i've ever met.

And Plan-It-X! i'm putting Ghost Mice on in Liverpool in September - so excited! i've never seen them before. They've asked if The Dauntless Elite can play too, which is a-ok with me!

One of my mates played with them at (i think) the Fenton in Leeds - apparently it was a sunny day, so by the time Ghost Mice were due on stage they took the whole crowd to a nearby park and did the set there. Which is pretty cool.

my preferred genre of choice. Lately been diggin on Da Toddlers, Sexy, Future Virgins, Lizards, The Ergs and all their related bands, Dillinger Four and all their related bands, all the various Scott Miller bands (The Bananas+Nar+The Ski Instructors), and Onion Flavored Rings (just to name a few). And then you have the more garage like stuff like Nobunny, Coconut Coolouts, and all that Rip Off Records and Goner Records stuff. I've found that for pop punk stuff, Little Type Distro is pretty much you're best bet for finding all that awesome stuff

i also like Party Garbage, Delay, Sass Dragons, The New Dress and This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb - and i think The Measure are possibly the best new(ish) pop-punk band in the world. The Ergs' drummer plays in them too.

on this side of the pond, it's all about The Dauntless Elite, The Down And Outs and Offshore Radio for me... i think The Cost Of Living are getting better all the time though.

Plan-It-X!has so many great bands and they make all of their releases available so cheaply. Brilliant label.
I saw Ghost Mice playing at a barbecue in the garden of the house where some of Anal Beard lived in Brighton. They were fantastic as were the 3 other bands who played. I'd been feeling a bit jaded with pretty much all music at the time, and that evening really re-charged the old batteries.

I love loads of the European pop-punk from the last decade or so - The Manges, Stinking Polecats, Maleducati, Travoltas, Raging Hormones, Apers, Pectasi, The Retarded, Dead Boyz Can't Fly, The Chromosomes, Peawees... pretty much everything on Stardumb Records is awesome.

Brighton seems to have a good few punky bands around at the moment, as always actually, but that's probably got quite a lot to do with Buz at the Punker Bunker shop putting on a lot of shows, bringing some great bands over to play, and generally helping to keep things vibrant.

But the UK scene as a whole seems to have quietened down over the last 6 or 7 years. What's happened to all of the brilliant bands who were around at the turn of the decade?
Vanilla Pod, Beauty School Dropout, Otherwise, W.O.R.M, Grover, Urko, Annalise, The 'Tone, Travis Cut, Servo, Southport, Scarper, Lightyear, Skimmer, Panic, Newtown Grunts and dozens more I've probably forgotten due to old age.

I could easily waffle on about all of the US hardcore bands I love, or the old UK anarcho ones, but instead of boring everyone, I'm gonna check out some of the recommended bands on this thread. I might see if I can dig out my old Discharge 'Noise Not Music' T-shirt too - it was louder than some of their singles.
