I always thought of myself as a punk, although I was too young to understand the "real" uk punk scene in 76/77. And it was american bands in early 80s like Black Flag & Dead Kennedys that I latched onto. They were leagues ahead of the exploited or discharge & whatever else was in a similar vein in the uk as I remember.

I was also into loads of UK stuff as well, though it's prob classed as post-punk (specially since Simon Reynolds catalogged it as such). Punk, post-punk, new wave, whatever. I always associated that distinction with the kind of kids who sat round the 6th form common room drawing rock family trees asserting that synthesisers weren't proper instruments.
