The punk movement created a revolution in the music industry with its anarchic approach and DIY ethos. It was the antidote to a bloated record business that had become moribund and prog bands which had become hugely self-indulgent. Punk grew out of the politics of the Seventies
in the UK and from bands like Dr Feelgood. With the Sex Pistols as torch-bearers, the movement provoked strong reactions amongst music fans and industry alike. The first wave of punk was reasonably short-lived but many of the bands continued. But punk has never gone away and there is a whole new generation listening to the likes of The Damned, The Buzzcocks, X-Ray Specs, Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Clash as well as a continuing stream of punk bands.
