STOP PRESS: Since Tripod censored my Punk Couples gallerys, the 1977 Calender Months of June 3rd-30th - July & August 1-24th are now not available. I'm trying to get these pages back up as soon as I can find enough space - Peter Don't Care
Back on this day 25 years ago...........
CLICK THE CALENDER DATES TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED...
Well thats it for 1977...'78 WILL HAVE TO WAIT. I need a rest!
I missed out a helluva lot due to lack of resources, space and time. So my appologies to the bands, individuals who are abscent, if I knew about em I would've included. Also to all the European/US punk outfits not documented, you'll have to dig up your own historys on those. Hope everyone enjoyed this look back at the Year where PUNK broke out in to the mainstream...2oth Century Punk Archives my next big project is now a reality!
Special thanx go out to all the Punks and individuals who wrote, took pictures and were just there to document all these facts in books, mags on records in zines and on film. I used the majority of info outta my own 25 year collection and gave credit for outside sources where known....
