    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.

    Ah ha.
    You learn something new every day.
    Maybe it all goes back to Louie Louie
    A case could be made.


    And the original was 1955!
