See Emily Play and Arnold Layne are great psychedelic pop songs with no connection to '70s punk that I can see. Early Who songs such as My Generation and Anyway Anyhow Anywhere, in those I can see a connection.

Troggs definitely and also '60s garage songs such as Psychotic Reaction, 96 Tears, Pushin' Too Hard and You're Gonna Miss Me. Wonderfully primitive, bless 'em.

Anyone else like British punk/Oi band Sham 69?. Jimmy Pursey & Dave Parsons the Page & Plant of British punk rock.

I've always felt that Iggy and The Stooges and the MC5 were patient zero for punk.
In the USA BikerDude but in the land of Sherlock Holmes, gas lights & everlasting fog it was The Pink Fairies who were a bunch of 'long haired anarchist hippies' living in a commune around Notting Hill in west London circa 1970. The Pink Fairies have connections with Mick Farren & the Deviants and Hawkwind.

Mickey Jupp was right at the birth of punk... and hardly a sinner is any the wiser... before the Feelgoods, Eddie & The Hot Ross, Kursaals and the Canvey sound- this guy was rocking the chops and shunned the bigtime... A great book is out there called Hole In my Pocket, tells great tales of just how deep rooted his secret stardom is.
Nice bit ' a blues here:

Mickey Jupp's The 'red shoe' Legend album is a great springboard from Nick Lowe pubrock/ Brit Rock N roll revival to the early roots and shoots of punk...

(An LP well worth a purchase off the old interwebs.)

It's all Copeland on the cut, but the TV appearance is The Police and some of Curved Air.

I usually smile when I read about certain rock bands or performers either British or American who are said to be 'the godfathers' of punk or punk rock and we all know who they are people like Iggy Pop and The Stooges and the MC5. I believe I even read that someone like Marc Bolan of T.Rex being described as one of the first punks??. In Britain a band like the Pink Fairies a bunch of hippy 'long hairs' living in squats in west London in the early 1970s (a band that I actually like a lot and I have a number of their cd/albums) are sometimes said to be early punks pre-dating the punk movement by a couple of years in the UK.
