Ok there i said it again when i mentioned it on twitter this afternoon it sure rattled a few cages! But as paul cooks t shirt said in 76, i hate Pink floyd and nothing has changed for me! Yes i know Johnny Rotten sold out but what does that matter to my opinion im still bloody the same poor and bloody angry,Pink Floyd were everything that was wrong with music when punk broke, distant superstars in their limos nothing in common with the fans playing uninspiring music for the drug adeled hippies!
Listen to this yawn fest from 77
Then listen to this!
I know what i was listening to then as now!
Maybe ive not smoked enough weed to “get” Pink Floyd some of my friends love them but for me music has to be exciting and edgy not a yawn fest!
As Crass said
“Punk was once an answer to years of crap,
A way of saying no where we’d always said yep”
Crass were the real deal they had the politics and the lyrics, and lived it as they said.
Punk sold out in the end and ended up being thought of as the exploited,gbh,vice squad and other shit like that, it could not last before people wanted to take the cash,it was the last great musical movement, and im thankful for one thing Paul cooks t shirt gave me an ever lasting hatred of Pink Floyd!
PUNK IS DEAD!
But feel the danger before it went sour!
One of the things i loved most about punk was when they interviewed steve jones on radio luxemburg (fab208 i think) he said “were not into music were into chaos! when your young thats what you want chaos!
