Anarchy in the UK

aituk

Anarchy in the UK was released 40 years ago this Saturday.

It still sounds fresh, magnificent, anarchic, robust, nasty, uplifting, enlightening and just fucking great.

People still love it. Those that were around back then that loved it, still love it. Those that were around back then – that at the time loved the Bee Gees – love it now. Ah those people that threw bricks at us. Those that called us names.Those that now love punk rock. Hmmm…

But it isn’t about that and let’s face it most of us early punks moved on pretty quickly. Some back then never got and still haven’t got it. But hey ho – that’s their loss.

And those that came since… The indie kids and acid heads. The musos and the headbangers. You’ve just to love the Sex Pistols.

However what really rankles is that this Saturday 40 years after Anarchy in the UK was released people are doing the Mannequin Challenge thinking they are fucking cool.  Listening to a singles chart full of EDM-styled shite. Or in the car listening to Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and James Bay while waiting for the Stone Roses gigs.

Fuck sake…

Do something you youngsters and others. Make some music that upsets old farts like me. Get off your phones,  get out, get pissed, destroy!

Meanwhile here’s Johnny, Steve, Paul and Glen
