Ep. 14: Diggin' Up Sum Punx! - ProtoPunk & 1st Wave

Episode Summary

This week we travel back in time to the dawn of PUNK ROCK! We discuss the bands that influenced the movement, and the bands outside the usual suspects of The Ramones, Sex Pistols, and The Clash that were there in “Year Zero – 1976”. If you don’t think Punk is for you based on secondhand information; we ask that you listen with an open mind and experience the bridge between rock and hard rock to this movement.

Episode Notes

This episode features songs with the shortest track length that we’ve ever played; it’s PUNK ROCK people! Punk is where Kevin started down his path of music fanaticism. Although, that was more based around the hardcore and 2nd Wave of Punk scenes. We discuss the origins of the movement: the bands that were punk before punk, and the bands that were the contemporaries of the bands that we all know as Punks.
