Tough Punx!

Sometimes everything's quite good.  Even though I feel ill, pretty bad, with flu and aching body parts and a vague sense of being at death's door (a bit over the top, maybe), in spite of all of this some days just work out pretty well.  Friday was one of those days.  I played a show at the Labour Club with Foxes and Little Cosmonaut who were both very good, and you can read a bit about them if you look through some older posts.  Unlike some other shows, my set went quite well.  Sure I screwed up a few songs but that's just what I do, but overall I really enjoyed and it seemed like most of the audience did too.  EXCEPT, except for a couple of guys sat right next to the stage.  They'd had a few drinks, got a little rowdy, and, they were punks.  Y'know, real punks.  Like with the spiky hair and combats and Doc Martins.  (For the record, I'm not sure exactly how punk you can really call these kind of fashion choices, these kids still have to go into shops and buy these clothes and they still try and look just like 1977.  What's the difference between this and the Mod revival?)  Punk kids are tough and that means they don't like twee indie pop and they can certainly shout louder than I can.  Hey it's all in good fun, I wasn't too bothered by it all really. 

Now, 'punk rock' has never really appealed too much to me.  I love The Ramones, but I always found the British take on the genre a little too caught up in spitting and safety pins and standard guitar to get too excited (I'm sure it was great being there at the time but in retrospect it just doesn't appeal to me.)  I've always been more interested in punk as an idea, as opposed to a genre or fashion trend.  The idea of doing what you love and using the resources you have available to get it done.  That being said, I do love some really good, fast and loud pop with a bit of punk thrown in. These 2 mp3s are by bands who I don't really know much about at all, I simply stumbled across their websites by chance and found that the songs totally stuck with me.  So have a listen to Dumb Haircuts and The Coathangers.

Dumb Haircuts - Kill The Trees

The Coathangers - Shut Tha Fuck Up
