    ...as much as Lydon is a complete tit:

    Yes and no, depends on your definition of good and also how old you were at the time and if you wore a tartan miniskirt and dyed your hair blue.

    I didn't have any 'body art' but, when I met my wife (now ex), she was a bit annoyed that I had more make up then she did. I thoroughly enjoyed both the punk and the new romantic eras. I even had a band.

    Didn't answer your original question.
    I didn't dye my hair blue, I had two rather lovely teenage girls do it for me.
     
  6. Hmmmm. They're not as good as they once were, are they?:eek:

    Gave up on that vid and went for the 1976 vid instead.:smile:

    Strange one the pistols... hugely underrated, if you ask me. Think they became a bit novelty.

    Even though they were the best all round punk band, I can't imagine anyone sitting down and sticking an album on, like they would with the clash or damned.

    Hmmm.

    I was never into the Bay City Rollers, so I wouldn't know about that.

    I more or less 'missed' the punk era, unfortunately, as I was too busy poncing around to Genesis, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Yes etc. :biggrin:

    One day I'll sit down with youtube and re-live' the punk era. Might even put a safety-pin through my lip for the extra authenticity. B)

    Vastly overrated in a musical sense but would we have had Punk without them? I quite like Lydon and he is growing old sort of disgracefully, thought he was funny at awards ceremony the other day.

    I like some of PIL's stuff but the pistols, for me, were largely crap. Like cliff richards to the dead kennedy's Elvis.
