    A second wave Scottish punk rock band with loads of energy that I tried listening to was THE EXPLOITED. The clue is in the aforementioned statement TRIED.

    A number of short sharp "songs" with shouted lyrics and thrashing guitars either about British army life or living in Margaret Thatcher's Britain (she was the British Prime Minster 1979-1990) during the 1980s and her Conservative run government with loads of anti lyrical sentiments directed towards Mrs.T and the British establishment which is ok but it all gets a bit 'samey' after about half 4 or 5 songs in to a 25 track album!!.

    This band probably sounded great live on the night especially when under the influence of drink and drugs but to listen to a cd of their "music" cold isn't the same experience. The band had a small hardcore following in the UK during the 1980s of second generation punks and skins (skinheads).

    Indeed E-Z..punk became New Wave..and when those edges were rounded off into the New Romantics..die hard punk suddenly became Oi! music...listen to early Menace and the Angelic Upstarts etc..even early Sham 69..it was very refreshing...rubbing shoulders with the 2nd mod wave came The Cockney Rejects and that shouting skinhead malarkey..not my brew at all. I went to see The Exploited around 1980?...very good in fairness..the jockwave of scotsmusic brought some good sounds:

    The Skids.

    The Bollock Brothers.

    The Rezillos.

    TV Stars.

    Yeah I am old enough to remember Albert Tatlock a old WW1 solider who frequented The Rovers Return pub in Coronation street and who died in real life back in the 1980s.

    Albert lived in the house right next door to the pub and the joke was if anyone went into the pub toilet (the restroom for our US cousins) you would walk straight into Albert's living room!!.
