4.0 out of 5 stars School of '77 show the way., 11 July 2004
This review is from: The Image Has Cracked (Audio CD)
I have to say that I was slightly taken aback by the first rather eccentric review of this CD.To call Mark Perry a 'Middle class mockney' is absurd.The man was born and bred and still lives in Deptford! Hardly the last bastion of middle England I'd say.The claim that this CD is for ageing punks who weren't there in the first place is absurd beyond belief. This is the man who wrote the UK's most famous fanzine 'Sniffing glue'. Unlike those other clothes horses and fashion victims (the Banshees - From Bromley, Kent I might add), this is the sound of a group who lived the punk ideal for what it was meant to be and at the time.
Now ATV weren't the greatest group to come out of punk, but they had the right attitude and tried to seperate themselves from the crowd. They refused to tow the punk party line and were just as likely to be seen playing with Gong and The Pop Group as they would be with Adam and the Ants. I would reccomend this CD for people who are interested in a slice of realism as opposed to some of the posed attitudes that could be so prevelant in 1977.
I rest my case - An ageing ex punk who was there at the time!
