Welcome

To all those Old Punks. This should probably be called 'Old Geezers making music in their bedrooms'. Isn't it funny that we start off with a tennis racquet playing air guitar to or favourite band in our youth in our bedroom and all these years later we are banging out tunes in the spare bedroom that doubles as a studio!

 

Please post links to your old recordings, photo's, videos of old or new punk songs here.

i remember seeing PIL at their first gig on christmas night 1978 at the rainbow theatre, finsbury park london. a completely different sound to what was about at the time. we were chatting to john lydon before he went on stage, i recall my mate swapped his scarf with with him. when he came on stage he had a carrier bag with tins of beer in which he threw one by one into the audience.

Cool louie! I'm also an old punk. ...With a fondness for Kodakanjos.

Wish I'd had my 3 string tin-canjo back when I was in a punk band in '78 - currently re-living my youth, gigging with it in a band called the Folkin' Hillbillys!
