Basil Brush's punk rock Christmas single

Basil Brush has released a Christmas single tribute to the late 70s punk scene.

Reminds me of the sort of thing Chris Sievey used to do I suppose.

Punk was over before 1979 though

Christmas No1 1979 was Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall

  • I knew that

UK Subs at # 38
Clash (London Calling) in at # 43
The Damned at # 48

pretty much over

Tbf punk probably reached it’s peak in terms of quality in 1979 with GI

January 14th 1978

Chart positions aren’t a good indicator of this sort of thing

Maybe not but the chart was already full of post-punk … which probably peaked commercially just a couple of months later

Avril Lavigne got chart hits in the 00s, punk lives
