Some great additions that I forgot about. What do you mean no punk in Late 70's? What about The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Jam, The New York Dolls, The Stooges and The Velvet Undergorund.

Although I was a scooter riding Mod, I attended many punk shows with Punk friends during the 80's. Here are a few I went to see.

The Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles Ca.
Exploited
Crass
Dead Kennedys
GBH (grievous bodily Harm)

Melbourne Florida
Seven Seconds
Corrosion of Comromity (early when they were punk)

Buena Park California
The Dickies
Agent Orange

Beach Concert in Seal Beach, Ca. (What a fucking gig that was)
Specimen
Alien Sex Fiend
Tupelo Chain Sex
The Damned
The Misfits
Christian Death

Madam Wongs West, Ca.
Ten Inch Men
Stiff Little Fingers

Miami Florida
Revolting Cocks
Psychedelic Furs

Some other small venue stuff in California
The Three O' Clock or the formally Salvation army (also got in their video for Jet Fighter Man)
Soiuxe and The Banshees
The Cure
The Untouchables (Ska)
The Specials (Ska)
Madness many many times
Big Country
Husker Du
Bad Brains (beach fest)
Social Distortion (Six Flags Magic Mountain)

Many of these gigs were in California where I grew up but I seen a lot more while in the Air Force. I could never get my Air Force friends to attend the gig's with me. Only fight I ever got into was the Olympic Auditorium gig with Exploited. That concert got way out of hand including about 300 punks fighting outside and the whole place was thrashed. It was the last punk gig ever thrown at that venue. I have never been in a band but wish I could have.

We defiantly had many Punk movements in the Early 80's. First it seemed the Oi' or Nazi-Punk movement was gaining a lot of momentum but it was quickly rejected. Many bands rejected this movement including Crass on their "Noise not Music" tour which I attended. The Olympic Auditorium melee was a directly related to the large number of Nazi-Punks in attendance. This movement went underground shortly after and became the more popular White Power movement that swept the LA region. This group was trouble they created some very violent gangs that started with FFF (Fight For Freedom) after a violent shootout among their members the group broke off into two groups. One group FFF was the less violent Anarchist movement and a more violent off-shoot was then formed called The L.A.D.S.

The LADS or (LA Death Squad) were a feared Oi group that had roamed the LA streets causing random acts of violence. These two gangs spurred an anti-Nazi punk movement which causing a backlash, only the most fervent members remained and the Nazi-punk movement died around 1991.

After the late 70's now into the early 80's The Clash, Sex Pistols and New York dolls were being rejected for more aggressive music. The birth of early 80's punk was now formed with, The Exploited, The Dead Kennedy's CRASS, Black Flag, GBH, Fear and the Germs. The movement really gained mass appeal when small movie called "The decline of western civilisation" was released. After this movie punk really took off and hit probably the peak in USA around 1984-1985.

The movement remained non-violent until around 1985 when I stated noticing punk gangs appear. Skin heads were everywhere and punk gigs became more and more violent. As more and more gangs attended gigs I quite going to them. The slam pits became dangerous and fighting was the norm instead of the extreme. Early on fighting was considered fighting against your brothers but later younger and younger punks with something to prove became the norm.

I then started to attend smaller more nitch punk groups, like Seven Seconds, The Dickies and Agent Orange and met Kevin Seconds on more than a few occasions. At about this same time Skate punk was becoming popular and punk was starting to be aired on mainstream radio, the kiss of death for punk music. Punk can not survive in the mainstream, the movement is design to be underground and not intended for mainstream audiences. In all honesty without the Fad movement behind punk most escape to another Fad that is not exposed. At that time the other Fads were Mod (The Jam, The Lambrettas, Secret Affair), Ska (Madness, The Specials, The Selector and The English Beat), New Romantic (Roman Holiday, Duran Duran, Adam Ant) , Gloom ( Alien Sex Fiend, Specimen, Tupelo Chain Sex and Christian Death).

I had many friends in all scenes, I was a Mod, so of course I had lots of Mod friends but to improve the Mod numbers to compete with Punk, The Mod-Ska movement was then intertwined into one group. Shortly after 1985 most of these Fads died because of mainstream popularity. I stopped listening to all forms of underground music soon after that because everything got too aggressive and violent.

The modern youth of today in an ever increasing attempt to show up his parents has brought most of the modern underground movements to violent ends. Most smart youth will not enter into underground movements for fear of violence, they will typically listen to the music from a topically, this allows for bands to sell albums but the movement suffers as a whole. It is my belief that the best years are behind underground movements, the 1980's were the pinnacle. You will now receive pre-packaged establishment cookie cutter tailored punk/ska music from bands like No Doubt, Green Day and Rancid.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Sham 69. Some people consider them an Oi! band and a skinhead band, but they really refer to themselves as a punk band and really have never liked the fact they had a skinhead following. On many punk compilations, bands some label as OI! are on them. As for The Jam being a punk band. They got lumped in with the Punk Rock crowd because they were young, and didn't dress like everyone else. Of course, Bruce Foxton, bassist for The Jam is now a member of Stiff Little Fingers. The Police have even been called a punk band. Other punk bands include Blondie (they were punk before they became pop), the Go Gos (same as Blondie), Talking Heads, Television, and Wayne/Jayne County. As for Siouxsie and the Banshees, yes they started off as a punk rock band. Their first show was at the infamous Punk Rock Festival at the 100 Club in London. Siouxsie Sioux was a member of the infamous 'Bromley Contiengent' that followed around the Sex Pistols and was on stage with the Pistols during the legendary Bill Grundy incident. In fact, Sid Vicious and Robert Smith were both early members of the Banshees, as was Marco Perroni, who later joined up with Adam Ant after the Ants were poached by Malcolm Maclaren. Adam Ant go roped into the New Romantic tag mainly because the way he dressed. The Jam were the reluctant leaders of the late 70s 'Mod Revivial' because of 'Quadrophenia' and the fact that The Jam were a mod influenced band, and cited such 60s Mod bands as the Who and The Small Faces as influences. Another punk rock band not mentioned are The Nips (aka the Nipple Erectors), led by that drunken anomaly himself, Shane MacGowan. They has also been lumped in with the Mod Revival because of Shane's friendship at the time with Paul Weller of The Jam. I consider myself to be a Mod somewhat, but something about the energy that punk has really gets me going.

Easy there chief. The fact of the matter is that I don't give a flying shit about any of this stuff. I'm just saying, don't forget Lard. That's all. Besides, if you are so smart, then who was the lead singer of Lard anyway?
