    \o/ I prefer Preachin the Blues though :D Preach the blues!!! Wooooo + Spaz out!

    I saw Kid Congo in Dec/Nov. He played For the Love of Ivy and Sex Beat. Got a vid of the latter my mate made. Awesome stuff. As the comment on that Preachin' the blues link says: "It's like the Pixies meets Robert Johnson", although obviously GC were just before Frank Black and co.

    Was also reading an interview with Kid and he told how when he first started in the GC he couldn't play guitar so they open tuned it for him and would just shout "1, 5, 7" at him. :)

    I'll have to check out his solo stuff as i know everything he's worked on, but never really pulled him out as the common thread.

    I guess Devo were originally a 'punk' band - so I'll say...DEVO!

    Saw them at B'ham about 2 years ago - they have the best groupie pick-up ever - something like this:

    "ok so who likes the DKMs?"
    "all the females come on stage"

    /play closing song

    /all girls disappear

    They were warmup to Pogues when Shane McGowan rejoined a few years back - there was hardly any crowd left to see Shane fall about drunk

    Good gig

    Read Wonderland Avenue? If you're a Iggy man then I suggest it wholeheartedly

    Never a fan of Dead Kennedy's or Undertones really but they did some pretty good stuff

    Ash is pushing the confines of punk though I'm afraid :p

    Cant say i have read it. Looking at it though, seems a very interesting. Thanks for the recommendation! Oh, Jim Morrision is also involved \o/

    Going to have to pick it up, along with A Bit of A Blur.

    "The State Lottery" springs instantly to mind.

    and "Less Talk, More Rock" is brilliant in it's own little way.

    Their second album is the way to go although their first is good also.


    Edit: "Apparently, I'm A "P.C. Facist" (Because I Care About Both Human And Non-Human Animals)" has the best title though

    Propagandhi are awesome. So are the Weakerthans. Just remembered Against Me! who are awesome as well.

    Currently listening to Into the Valley by The Skids. They were quite good. Big Country were better though, but not punk obviously.

    Coke/heroin fueled excess from a man that was in the midst of it all. One of the best rock n roll books I've ever read. A part where a car crashes through someones roof is particularly lol worthy (and it all allegedly happened)

    Jim is in it for a bit but the parts where Iggy is present steal the show completely

    Really? While Jello Biafra is an interesting man if you listen to him speak, the DCs only have about 20 songs that they just recycled with new lyrics all the time.

    Hey Smuggo, If the thread title was 'best punk band', I'd agree with you entirely, but as it's 'favourite', there's no accounting for taste.

    For arguments sake, I think The Clash were much better, but Biafra's ranting reminds me of good times.

    /good times for me personally, not the stuff he was ranting about!

    If you like reading books from those in the midst of it all, try Eric Burdon's 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood'. Superb stuff, my favourite part of which involves himself, a pistol, a chandelier, Jim Morrison and a bunch of groupies.

    @Blaketown, thanks for the reccommendations, im enjoying :)

    btw, has anybody apart from myself mentioned the awesomeness that is Millencolin? Such a brilliant ska/punkrock band!

    I used to quite like Millencolin but a poor performance when I saw them live put me off. I still love Fox though, great track

    Ive gotta throw Frenzal Rhomb into the mix, I used to love those guys! I remember seeing them live in XLs nightclub in birmingham and there were about 30 people there total, was an awesome night they let a few ppl get up and sing the last song with em. They were playin with Useless ID and Slow Gherkin. Such an intimate gig, awesome!
  • Deleted user 17 February 2010 13:59:34
    I was gonna mention Useless I.D, Mouse in a Maze is an awesome song \o/

    Their more power pop than punk these days though.

    Millencolin circa 2000-2002, pure awesomeness! Also seen no mention of Pennywise yet, admittedly most albums sound the same but they have some tunes.
