(Belfast Telegraph)   Aging punk rockers get together for fundraising Christmas single. "Most of us may be celebrating our 50th birthdays these days, but there's no doubt about it - we've still got it." In related news, punk's not dead, it's just turned into your dad   (belfasttelegraph.co.uk) divider line 67

At least the punks are still rebelling and going against the grain. In my day, musicians did their Christmas stuff when they were still on the way UP, not when they need a pill to GET it up.

While I really liked the music of The Clash and Sex Pistols (my first exposure to punk), I just laughed at the idea they were "rebellious" in any way shape or form. The Clash were signed to CBS (their subsidiary Epic in the US), the Pistols to Virgin (Warners in the US), the idea that a huge multinational record company was a source of rebellion of any kind was ludicrous. Rebellion had been packaged and sold in rock music since at least 1965 (OMG! The Rolling Stones will rape your daughters and make your sons a hoodlum!!!!), it was as boring a marketing trope as "sensitive singer-songwriter" or "drugged-out heavy metal musician".

Killing Joke is laughing at you guys. Formed in '78. I saw them at the Irving in Manhattan twice in the last 4 years. They are louder and harder than ever, political, angry, and a massive crushing juggernaut live. Did material from throughout their career and have been releasing new albums regularly. Wire is still at it with new material. Pere Ubu. These are all bands that pioneered early punk, evolved into post punk, and stayed true to their creative ethic and original energy throughout their endevors. Swans are another, though not part of the late 70's original punk wave. All of these guys are old now. Tell Micheal Gira or Jaz Coleman they are an old washed up parody of their former selves... Say it to their face and make sure someone is recording the aftermath for youtube.

Gunny Highway, I thought I was the only one that likes those guys. Neato!

I dragged a friend of mine to their show in Tucson (99/00?). She didn't like it. I was elated all night.

I am pretty sure Lou Reed could still be considered Punk on the day of his death.

Given this current generation, the parents are more hardcore than the kids, sadly.

They are, by far, my favorite band.  Everything they do sounds perfect to me.

Paleorific: Uhm, you do not really listen to music do you.

That's a perfect example of why the FARK music tab died.

I bought my first album (Monkees Headquarters) in early 1967, I'm pretty certain I've heard more music across a wider spectrum of styles than you have. Guess what, it really is possible to listen to music AND think about too. I know, that's crazy talk, but it's true!

Since 1965 lol.... my my my

Again, why the FARK music tab died a lonely, sad, unlamented death.

Are you a rock historian?

No, I just play one on the Internet.

/sry but your post really put me off, it is just balderdash, balleyhoo, broohaha... only talk.

And yours is just cheap talk. That's a word starting with the letter C.

i was lucky enough to see them right around the time 0+2=1 came out, maybe a little before, at a shelterhouse of a public park in jefferson city, MO. awesome show, and they were getting a little long in the tooth for punkers even then. they still play circles around folks 1/3 their age.
