    Didn't really mind it being a bit US-centric since we've had all the stuff about the UK punk scene rehashed so many times over the years.
    I know, I know, I know, it's just that American punk (esp hardcore) is so terrible. The (post-)punk doc I'd like to see is the one about MCR - always consigned to the back burner because it didn't make news headlines, but produced just as much of impact and durability as that london.

    Oh great. So it's basically - the daughter of a newspaper heiress talking like a rasta an' ting, Richard Hell namedropping Rimbaud without even having read him, the only surviving New York Doll slurring about how cross-dressing shocked society, some rubbish band of black rastas playing the worst kind of white music bar polka, the only surviving Ramone trying to remember where the fuck they used to rehearse, Patti Smith droning "Horse...Gorse...", Henry Rollins gurning and buzzing like a sectioned catalogue model, Debbie Cunting Harry (the Gloria Hunniford of New Wave), and a bunch of vaguely 'skinhead' moaners who used to wear shorts and spend whole albums going "YOU WERE MY FRIEND / NOW YOU BETRAY ME!" - and that's Punk Attitude?! Well, thanks a fucking lot, Don! Christ, wild horses couldn't drag me to this documentary! You can stuff punk up your arse, I'd rather listen to skiffle!

    the clash is an anagram of lash-tech: d'n'b for s&m types

    the clash didn't invent decent flood defenses. if only they had...

    I absolutely hate Richard Hell.

    I'd watch the documentary just to see the bloke from the Screamers screaming 'Punish or be Damned' for three lifetimes.

    To be honest though I watched Big Brother instead last night because, as a child of the 80s, I'm a worthless X Factor iPod Myspace MTV bakelite sheep.

    It was on babylonian freeview More 4 and ting.

    The consensus on dissensus seems to be that USHC sucks balls.

    Actually there was some Fugazi footage that was alright.

    Come to think of it there was naff all about Big Black and the Buttholes in that thing - just Sonic Youth from that "Blast First" set. Presumably because they were well arty and had a female singer.

    all of whom, apart from the blaggers are way better than the clash (although they're probably not as good inventors*, obv)








    *the youth brush excepted

    I'd have maybe liked USHC more if the bands hadn't worn shorts and spent every bloody eight-track 7" calling each others' "scene credentials" bullshit / complaining about 'scene' hypocrisy or bragging about not drinking or fucking. Or doing songs about the KKK called "Hate Sucks!"

    Mind you, Middle Class were OK.

    I like them. And the Adolescents. Mind you, I also like the Descendents who seem to have formed to celebrate the twin pleasures of flatulence and Pepsi drinking.

    If The Dicks count I absolutely adore them.

    7 Seconds, Dag Nasty, The Vandals et al can jump in the sea as far as I'm concerned.

    Actually, Minor Threat ARE good if you think about it. I wouldn't want to go to the pub with them though.
