It is obvious that what you hear is an important part of your personality, even if you are reading this blog. Thus, even if some connect button "they do not like me, I do not care" when they come out to stroll around the corner, in general usually smile when we see someone with a shirt Clash roaming the streets. It is natural, if not externemos feeling. Punk is the ugly child of the rock, even though, ironically, was the one who came to rescue him. And I say that not just the story of the old disco and (gulp!) Yes and Pink Floyd. I speak mainly of the direct discourse around youth, where Chuck Berry portrayed the feelings of young people who, thanks to the conditions created by the post-war period, for the first time could be considered a group. Went away, but come back. Although everyone who left the 77 generation had the right to prosecute most of these bandinhas unsalted and compound names pathetic (my "favorite" is clap your hands say yeah), there is, as I say, a hole in the discography the majority of fans (one more!) she wants revenge. The Beatles they jump smiths and joy division ... Ok, ok. No accounting for taste and are not required consistency. But when there is a rule, do not ask me to be quiet. Can not. Deserves study. It is clear that Punk has a bad reputation. That is undeniable. And what most bands do today is clean up the bad part. Enjoy the musical structure (who grew up) and the visual, but giving that guy from the 2000s and it is clear that an electronic pat will not bother anyone. Today, I have the impression of hearing the riff of "Inside Out" from 999 in many, many songs ... Thus, as I have a fondness for Punk bands, I get that feeling of injustice. And this disc that accompanies this post helps to worsen the story. Come on, do not speak of "Holiday in Cambodia" because of all that surrounded the Dead Kennedys, but it is unbelievable that a song like "Babylon's Burning" has had as best placement on the charts a seventh miserable place on June 79 and then descended downhill. No, never asked for anything like "Bad" from Michael Jackson. But, after all, who knows Ruts? Hear these versions proves the beauty of the melodies. But perhaps the fact that here in our little world anyone know or like these bands makes them more special. They become ours.

http://991.com/newgallery/The-101ers-Letsagetabitarock-598670.jpg "Lets a get a bit a rockin"
Year:  1974
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Astralwerks rec.
Format:  CD
Tracks:  18
Time:  56 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:    Rock & Roll

The 101’ers were a pub rock band from the 1970s, notable as being the band that gave Joe Strummer (later of The Clash) his initial start as a musician. Formed in London in May 1974, the 101’ers made their performing debut on 6 September at the Telegraph pub in Brixton under the name El Huaso and the 101 All Stars. The name would later be shortened to the 101 All Stars and finally just the 101’ers. The group established itself on the London pub rock circuit prior to the advent of punk. The group was named for the squat where they lived together: 101 Walterton Road, Maida Vale, although it was for a time rumoured that they were named for “Room 101”, the infamous torture room in George Orwell’s novel 1984. The novel was later to become something of a manifesto for the political element of the punk rock movement.

"Why not?"
Year:  2008
Country:  Germany
City:  Hamburg
Label:  Tapete rec.
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  14
Time:  45 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:    Mod    Soul    Punk

MOD band started in 1998 in Hamburg (Germany). The band has recorded 6 long albums plus 8 ep’s, and frequently they make their releases in CD and Vinyl format. The musical style is a mix between Mod, Punk, Soul and other musical styles from 60’s decade. Their debut album "A bisserl was geht immer" (on "Fidel Bastro Records) was released in 1999. After several albums more it was the turn of this "Why not?", a disk which many people is confused with punk-rock bands ("superpunk", the policeman on the cover, etc.) but which demonstrate us how these people make high energy and fast Mod sounds like british 1979 bands (The Jam, Lambrettas, Nine Below Zero, etc.). The ortodhox Mods don´t considered SUPERPUNK as a "mod band" but there is no punk who consider the band as a "punk band". So? what is its adjective? how to describe them and their sound? everybody can to listen to them and to judge itselves. Me, I can simply I like them. No more.

MOD band named “Stanley Road” like the Paul Weller song, which started in 2003 to play music typical from late 70s and early 80: mod revival, power pop, punk, soul, etc. In 2011 recorded its debut EP “Clash City Scooters” with 4 amphetaminic songs in a precious vinyl and excellent artwork plus a T-shirt of the band as a present. In 2012 “Stanley Road” again in the studio recorded a single with 2 songs dedicated to the working class of their city, Mieres (Spain). Late 2013 the band finally made its debut long album with fast pop-punk songs but also sweet and calm baladas. Here we have one of the best spanish Mod bands of nowadays and its depurated, clean and well produced sound, plus its perfect english accent, become STANLEY ROAD as a band from the true Brighton city in 1964.
