Punkarama

|
My wife's friend has a 12 year old who, apparently, loves punk rock. So my wife's going to see her pal tomorrow and asks me if I'd like to do the youngster a present.

So here, after a happy couple of hours drinking Czech beer and fooling about with the CD burner, is the full tracklisting:

1. Angelic Upstarts - Teenage Warning
2. 999 - Homicide
3. Black Flag - Rise Above
4. Crass - Shaved Women
5. The Damned - New Rose
6. The Heartbreakers - Born to Lose
7. Les Thugs - Moon over Marin
8. Electric Eels - So Agitated
9. L7 - Fast and Frightening
10. The Lurkers - Ain't got a Clue
11. Mudhoney - Touch me I'm Sick
12. Sham 69 - Borstal Breakout
13. MDC - John Wayne was a Nazi
14. The Saints - Know your Product
15. Public Image Ltd - Public Image
16. Menace - GLC
17. Penetration - Don't Dictate
18. Rezillos - Can't stand my Baby
19. Richard Hell and the Voidoids - Blank Generation
20. The Ruts - H Eyes
21. Snuff - I think we're Alone Now
22. The Stranglers - Hanging Around
23. Adam and the Antz - Zerox
24. Devo - Joko Homo
25. Dead Kennedys - Nazi Punks
26. The Transplants - Tall Cans in the Air

Gosh, when I was 12...no, you don't want to know what I was listening to! The tracklisting was difficult, so much great stuff to get on one small CD. I was very tempted to add some pre-punk classics (the boy has to know the history) such as the Velvets, MC5, Stooges etc and some post-punk stuff, eg: Gang of Four, Pop Group...but that can wait for another day.

I once 'guested' on vocals with The Ruts at a friend's wedding reception. They were gracious enough to put up with me both being pissed *and* choosing to sing 'Brown Sugar' :)

Actually, they were very civilised about it! I worked with Dave Ruffy (drums) in a record shop and he was one of the nicest people I've ever met :)

Now that my memory is clearing, I seem to recall that the guy who introduced me to Dave was a Buddhist. Even in my bad old days I had 'good connections' :)
