What a great performance from a band I've never seen but only 'haired' before on Radio 1 on John Peel or on Tommy Vance shows when heavy rock was still in vogue. Thanks.

There must be something wrong with my ears. I saw/heard formulaic rock performed by a band with too much hair and not enough talent.

Each to his own.

It's a ubiquitous radio sound from the '70s.

But to me it defines the old pretentious prog rock ere when new and exciting punk had arrived to freshen things up. Rock is dead long live Punk!

Punk ?

Oh I remember those guys with the safety pins and zips, the ones that couldn't play, brief run in the seventies and eighties before the new romantics took over.

Revolutions are by nature a quick event!

Short, simple, slightly aggressive and pertinent to the mood of the day.

40 odd years on I still know why this genre grabbed my attention.
