Re: BBC4 Friday 1st June : "Punk Britannia" & "We Who Wait: TV Smith & the Adverts"

I quite liked the second part. It's always nice to see the BBC dredge up faces I probably never placed to the music before...and punks seem to be much better preserved than most other musicians (I don't think the subjects of Acid House Britannia will have fared so well). My problem is I just really smegging hate Pub Rock. Just re-read Lester Bangs' huge Clash article*, which is arguably his best piece of writing and perhaps the best writing about punk music altogether, so I'm kinda mentally dragged back on this scene again.
