Have to agree with crystaltrips, punk should always have been about doing what you wanted, moving forward, trying, experimenting. Some of it, and the immediate post-punk era threw up a lot of great and different sounds, but every movement is gonna have it's conservative side. "I weep for the rebel's conventional ways" (Ian Hunter). This is really good
"I weep at the genre latrine that was/is the punk scene". Indeed Mr Crystaltrips. Magazine always moved forward. Shame about the straight jacket that Punk turned into. Devoto and co were amazing at the Forum last year. Yes I dare say Pudzinski is correct, weeping at a latrine would most likely get you discharged from the military.
