After the Lord Mayor’s show; after the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Buzzcocks had had their debuts, fallings out and albums, there were the ‘post punk’ bands (to use a term that was coined to make sense of things).
To most 1977 was the year Punk went Overground. 1976 had seen the release of The Damned’s New Rose and the Sex Pistols Anarchy in the UK, along with the Bill Grundy outcry, which, in a way killed the movement as a cult.
