    Was a bit young when it all started (am 46).
    Got hooked when old brother played me slf alternative Ulster and anything from the clash.

    Still listening to,
    The Clash
    SLF
    Sham 69

    Like a few USA bands,
    Rancid
    Social distortion
    Lars fredrikson

    Plus ska/punk bands like the interrupters.

    Got a habit of find one band on YouTube and seeing what else I come across.

    Being 10 years older than yourself I was around at the height of the punk era, not a punk myself but had many punk friends at the time (I was a skin) we used a club in B,ham called the Cedar where many up and coming punk bands played. Discharge, Dead Wretched, G.B.H etc. Other good punk bands Peter and the test tube babies (great live) Sham 69, UK Subs, Chelsea, Anti Nowhere league. There were many other great bands at the time as well.

    G.B.H are still going. Anti nowhere league and Peter and the test tube babies are from near me. Wish I was around at the height. Lucky for me my teenaged kids are punk and ska fans.
