PUNK DEBUTS


 

During the UK musical explosion of 1976 known as Punk ,a number of bands were formed as a direct consequence of the emergence of the Sex Pistols and a number of other bands, who may not be directly 'Punk' bands, embraced the 'can do' attitude of the movement. The critical moment of decision on whether there was validity in Punk was the release of albums from these bands and during 1977 and 1978 the debuts from the movements best were/are surprisingly good and when reflected on 30 odd years later they capture the vibrancy of the times.
