This year, the UK is celebrating the 40th anniversary of punk. While the origins and foundations of punk predate 1976, that year is generally acknowledged as the period during which the subculture exploded. With bands forming throughout the UK, legendary live shows taking place, and the first recordings being released, 1976 was a crucial and influential time for punk. Arguably the best box set of its kind, “①②③④: Punk & New Wave 1976-1979” collects key recordings from the punk and early post-punk era.

On this date in music history—two very important gigs were staged on 4 July 1976: Ramones supported protopunk band Flamin’ Groovies at The Roundhouse in London; and The Clash made their live debut opening for Sex Pistols at the Black Swan in Sheffield.

And for all the house heads grumbling that you can’t dance to punk, I offer two fingers in response, and remind you of the pogo.

    Debbie Harry teaches How To Pogo:

  2. GREAT SHARE … I already have it but this really has a lot of the great old school stuff … Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, etc … too bad they didn’t fit bands like The Business, The Blood etc. over 5 CDs

    ;-D

    and I agree the Pogo is definitely a dance, probably the first dance I ever danced … lol

  3. Fuck1ng Awesome! Thanks

    @ Josh Wink – the Blood??? The Business???? Weren’t they part of that horrible genre called oi?

    • lol … Oi, streetpunk, what’s the difference! Yes, they were Oi but they wrote some of the best Punk songs, e.g. The Blood – Done Some Brain Cells Last Night; The Business – Harry May, Drinking and Driving … can’t beat it!
