      I love the first Clash album...so much damn energy...and it sounds today more like an English garage band than so called punk.

      For my first post since finally joining Garage Punk I'd like to throw out there a great band from Buffalo, NY - The Enemies. They also went by Billy Piranha and the Enemies. The album is Product of the Streets. About as raw and garage as it gets. I listen to it all the time to this day.

      Seeing Im the one who started this discussion...let me say...I called it the first Punk era so not to be confused with 80's wave or 90's to recent punk (which is hardly punk at all).

      The explosion of 'music' from that 76-80 period was staggering, and is still held high today, and I knew we all had our faves from that era. Of course there was punk roots before 76'.  So maybe just the '76-80 Punk explosion' would be more appropriate. lol

      I appreciate all the interest in this topic all the same.

      Cheers, Andy

      Yeah Hideout, nice one for diggin up some of these cool quotes on punk origins to let lots o the good folks here know where it's a comin from...Dave, Greg and Lester etc all surely knew what was about to come too...

      Hideout Admin said:
      Ah, the history of punk, and specifically, of the word "punk," is always interesting. I need to get me a copy of Let it Blurt (Lester's biography), but in the meantime I'll just paste this here. You can read more at www.fastnbulbous.com/punk.htm

      The word "punk" first made an appearance in music journalism in a 1970 essay, "The Punk Muse: The True Story of Protopathic Spiff Including the Lowdown on the Trouble-Making Five-Percent of America's Youth" by Nick Tosches in Fusion. He described a music that was a "visionary expiation, a cry into the abyss of one's own mordant bullshit," its "poetry is puked, not plotted." That same year, Lester Bangs wrote a novella titled Drug Punk, influenced by William Burroughs' book, Junky, in which there is a line, "Fucking punks think it's a joke. They won't think it's so funny when they're doing five twenty-nine on the island." Dave Marsh used the phrase "punk rock" in his Looney Tunes column in the May 1971 issue of Creem, the same issue that introduced the term "heavy metal" as a genre name. Marsh wrote, "Culturally perverse from birth, I decided that this insult would be better construted as a compliment, especially given the alternative to such punkist behavior, which I figured was acting like a dignified asshole." Tosches, Bangs, Marsh, Richard Meltzer, Greg Shaw and Lenny Kaye used the term to define a canon of proto-punk bands, including the Velvets, Stooges, MC5, the Modern Lovers and the New York Dolls (DeRogatis, Let It Blurt, 118-119).

      dude i got my shit together. that era was first referred to as "punk" in 1972 (Lenny Kaye's liner notes in nuggets), which was four years before '76. i just don't think it's right to call '76-'80 "the first punk era," that's all. by doing so, you're displaying ignorance of real rock'n'roll in general and it's misleading to some who may come here and be totally unaware of '60s punk.

      Hey guys, how's about you're both right really, yeah OK it wasn't really called Punk back then, but since "Nuggets" those in the know DID in fact call it Punk: teen punk, garage punk, acid punk, psych punk, so none of us are wrong...and I'm sure as far as rock'n'roll is concerned we do have our shit together...have a great weekend

      Hey man you don't have to tell me it was rebel, I already know it, and yeah I also know about rat fink...a boo boo, but next you'll be telling me Link Wray wasn't punk ha ha...the thing is although we here all decide that The Sonics and the Seeds and all the 'rebel' mid-60s gangs are punk, it wasn't know as such at the time...and only when Lenny Kaye put the original 'Nuggets' together in the early 70s did anyone start using the term punk to mean raw and alive beat music...and of course it was only then that it was picked up by all the then new rebels, ie Ramones...Pistols, Damned, Clash, Adverts, Zeros, Saints, Eater, Boys, Rezillos, Valves, Scars, Prats, Dead Ks, Crime, Misfits, Exploited et cetera. I'm sure there will be many here who will agree...and me, well I ain't out to ruin it that's for sure...
