If you were one of the silly people who belived punk would change the world, I’d recommend not knocking anyone for believing in the Tooth Fairy, as you have no ground to stand on.
Two amusing article on the phoniness of punk (which died an ugly death, but gave birth to great things like new wave, post-punk and all those goth bands in the early 80s) appear here:
Punk Was Rubbish And Didn’t Change Anything: An Investigation
As good as
The Stooges‘ version was, this cover by Australia’s Radio Birdman, legends themselves, blows the original out of the water. Rob Younger just had the voice and the howl to make this into a vicious slab of vinyl.
To think that the kings of post-punk,
Joy Division, started as Warsaw, something not much greater than your typical pub band. Still, this is raw material, and it doesn’t sound too dated.
THIS is how you start a new year!
Hüsker Dü at their finest. May we all enjoy a wonderful 2015!
