Nothing like
turning up the distortion for a change...! I gave up trying shouty vocals though - they were never going to work. I did use to listen to a lot of UK Punk and it's been great going through some of those old records for inspiration.

Well...
I was into alot of the US punk artists in their early days - Patti Smith, The Ramones, Blonde - CBGB's was pretty well known - if you were into that sort of music. I also spent alot of time listening to UK punk (1977) when I was at school (as well as people like Al Stewart, Simon & Garfunkel) - so this is really my sort of thing - and great fun to do.

All the best

Wow Peter,

this really sounds great. That dirty guitar of yours and your excellent vocals are a great match.

I can't believe you were the first to use "Superficial" as a keyword! Cool!

This has been
a real trip down memory road for me - I've had The Ramones and The Adverts in the car - turned up loud! It's also the first time I've ever picked up a bass guitar and punk is the perfect platform to learn how to play.

Rebsie said 3486 days ago (May 2nd, 2008)
Great stuff Peter
Like you I've been enjoying doing my "research" by listening to The Stranglers on automatic repeat every night. I'd forgotten what it felt like to get an energy rush from listening to music. Them was good times!

My brother and I used to cut out pictures of Margaret Thatcher from the newspaper and throw darts at her.

Great noisy guitars, and great little chord at the end, like a musical two-finger salute.

"Stick it up your arse you boring old fart" ... love it! They don't make lyrics like that any more.

Peter Bauckham said 3486 days ago (May 2nd, 2008)
Whatcha Rebsie!
You can 'arf put on that Essex accent! I've been having a great time with this CBGB's challenge - listening to some of me old punky stuff and shouting (although I doesn't sound like it) at the mic. And of course it's time to have fun with lyrics - My son (12) was rather shocked at the words - but my parents (in their mid 70s) weren't - how bizarre is that? So much for youth rebellion!

Good to see you here

a bit of attitude and that was the great thing about the punk scene- loads of attitude. I try and include a little humour in my songs - I wouldn't want people to think I take things too seriously. I still chuckle every time I see your poster Mr Vicious!

You Brits are just too good at this
you got the dole and the Queen and arses and biscuits and all that other cool shit to complain about. You did a great job of making all that bitching sound like a rocking good time - excellent vocals and killer guitars. Watch your gear if we ever share a bill.

...there's lots to moan about in the UK -It's no wonder there were so many cool punk bands here! The sad thing is, 30 years on there's still the same things to moan about - so much for progress!

Despite my usual folky, protest stuff - I'm a bit of an old punk really - so this challenge was far to good to let pass - It's given me to chance to rehash a load of old themes (unemployment, politicians, discrimination etc.) with a new musical backdrop - great fun.

Thanks for listening

It's funny
doing this challenge listening to some old punk stuff that, when it came out, seemed really outrageous, but now is so mainstream. I love the punk sound of '77 when it all sounded so fresh. It was great trying to re-create that sort of sound.

All the best

There's another
song I've done for this CBGB's thingy that mentions 'Maggie'. We're still tying to erase all the post war housing estates - let alone the legacy of Thatcherism... The sad thing is that they all seem to be a bad as each other. Glad you enjoyed the tune.

Now you've
been deleted, life will never be the same again! Actually, the name dates back to the early '80s - I always thought it would be a great name for a punk band but all I had was a 12-string acoustic guitar - hardly punk! So it's taken me 28 years to use the name as intended.

Glad you liked it

I've never been so happy to see the "musical note" symbol beside someone's name! It's been way too long - great to hear some new music from you. This is great - lovely guitar sound, and nice vocal. Some terrific lines in there, humorous and scathing. Love it. First time using a bass - you'd never know. Excellent. I hope we won't have to wait so long for the next one! Nicely done. Peace.

thank you - I always get a buzz when you have something new too. You're right - it's been way too long! I wanted to try something a bit different and the idea of CBGB's got me all fired up. I've been meaning to get a bass for ages - wasn't sure if I'd get on with it (as the frets are so far apart) but so far so good.

Thanks again

Great vocals and really good guitars Peter - sounds like you might have done this before ;) Drums work just right. Could do with a bit more bass.

Sounds a little "Sex Pistols meet Buddy Holly"!

I missed the whole punk thing, but this sounds pretty good to me.

Hi Neil
Thanks - I like 'Sex Psitols meets Buddy Holly' - I kept coming up with 'Peggy Sue' when I was writing this! I was a bit tentative with the bass - first time I'd played a bass guitar - also I mixed and mastered this though a £20 mini system and didn't want to blow the delicate speakers up! I'm hoping to get a new amp for my 'studio' very soon (just blew the budget on a bass guitar) - Thanks again Neil - I'll be check your newbie out very soon...

All the best to you in 'Oz'

I have to agree with Michael. This sounds completely authentic and this could have popped up on any mixtape I had back in those days and I wouldn't have blinked. I also think you could have had a hit with this, Peter.

This is one of my faves I've heard, so far, and I REALLY love the song art.

Thanks Lisa
I'm glad this has come out so authentic sounding - I did listen to a fair bit of punk and new wave stuff many years ago - and must admit to having a 'refresher' session in the car before recording this. CBGB's has been great fun.

Thanks for listening - I very much enjoyed your tunes too!

Lots of attitude in those vocals, my man! And that guitar screams. The drum properly pounds, so yes, there you have your punk tune.

No wait. The bass! Where's the bass! I don't hear a bass!

Ok, I do hear it, but he seems to be playing from the loo. Turn the ugly guy in the back up a bit?
