    One of my faves too, although it was actually 1980. Nearly as good as Teenage Kicks.
    Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.

    the undertones really didn't do much in the US. Not like the Jam or Tom Robinson band.

    one of my fav's but admittedly a little later:



    Also, what's life without a little UK subs.....

    I bought the Rattus Norvegicus album after watching them live (and getting covered in goz) in Grimsby in 1977 when they were still playing smaller venues. I was 15 at the time and it was the first punk album I ever bought, it was also the year I ditched my flares!

    One of the great 1980s anthems from a war torn NYC. Song is from about 1980:

    Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start seeing people out there having a good time on motorcycles. It makes me take another look. - S.M.
