Punk Music

Who you looking at, Punk?! If you’re looking for trouble, Punk music (and all its other forms) is perhaps the best place to look. The Punk movement allowed artists freedom to create, to be aggressive, expressive, controversial and as Minutemen man Mike Watt once said: “Punk.. for me was a big middle finger to this whole talent thing!” Perhaps that’s being a bit self-deprecating because as we all know Punk was far more than just three chords…

When it comes to 'collectability' of Punk records, there are numerous artists that are held in high esteem with hobbyists. From our fair shores of the UK, bands such as The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, The Slits, Stiff Little Fingers, Crass, Buzzcocks, U.K. Subs, X-Ray Spex, John Cooper Clarke (or Dr Clarke as he is now known!), 999, The Vibrators, The Adverts, The Skids, Blitz, Wire, Anti-Establishment, Angelic Upstarts, The Cortinas, The Lurkers and The Drones are all essential to any collection.

Crossing the pond, seminal acts falling into Punk territory include Blondie, The Cramps, Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies, The Heartbreakers (led by the charismatic Richard Hell), New York Dolls, Television (hugely influential on the New York scene, also keep an eye out for Neon Boys releases, also featuring Richard Hell), The Adolescents, Ramones, The Meatmen, Germs, The Weirdos, Devo, The Dictators, Johnny Thunders and Pere Ubu.

From Punk many sub-genres emerged such as Oi!, Riot Grrrl, DIY, Glam Punk, Art Punk, Street Punk, Pop Punk, Ska Punk, Deathrock, Melodic Punk, Horror Punk and even Peace Punk!

We welcome any Punk collection with open arms because we do, every so often, like to rebel.
