So on point recgord27!
Saw the 'Westway Boys' in 1977-they buzzed like an MG42 on the Russian front.
Believe or not I was staying in a Catholic retreat in the Derbyshire countryside and took a cassette copy with me-truth be known I got more of a calling from Joe's Telecaster and Mick's Goldtop than I did from any letter from the Corinthians!
Janie Jones, 48 hours, White Riot, Garageland are and were stuff of legends - The Damned and their debut offering comes a close second.
Hot on the heels of British discourse with all things political - these Welsh Wizards (not excluding Budgie!) slammed what was wrong into 3 minutes on a regular basis. Generation Terrorists is a debut filled with anger, social comment and slum beauty.
I was blessed to see them with the late and missing Richie... I recall that I was teleported back to the Roxy or Marquee some 12 or 13 years previous.
It wasn't all 'Madchester' then.... urgent music at it's best!
