C'mon now you know you bought these to match your t shirt.
Some Charles Hawtrey y-fronts has much more in common with the reality of the band.
Art imitating life.

Sex Pistols = pants.

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

I've made it my life's mission not to think like a grown up. The realization that I am simply doomed to failure only validates my existence. 😉 Depends on what we think being grown up means. Some ways I'm stupidly immature, some ways as painfully dull and cynical as any adult. Wars, religion, racism...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Punk has always had a Randian type of problem. Randian philosophy emphasizes the primacy of the individual and selfish to an insane degree, yet in practice they're a bunch of lunatic tribalists ready to excommunicate heretics. Punk more generally also elevates individual self-expression, being your...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Are punks just like the left, constantly eating each other? Not quite as vicious, I don't think, but there is certainly that element of purer than thou and accusations of betrayal for heterodox thinking. This started here with the snobbery of the London clique. The Bromley contingent and so on. Lik...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

The shock value of punk has been totally absorbed and diluted. But then that value was not always a positive. I'm thinking of the swastika playing into the hands of the fascist brigades. The shock value—the superficialities—had value at first, for grabbing attention and showing defiance, but it did...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Today punk is just another fad or fashion of yesterday like Teddy Boys or Mods. The image of punk in modern society is no longer a shocking thing as it once was. It can be seen in high street fashion and it's graphics and colour sells everything from t shirts to breakfast cereals. One author has ar...

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

I think if I was going to sum up what I consider punk to be then it's this.

Taking the hatred and turning it into a positive force.
