What a great read. This is a must for those of you that grew up with punk & oi. What a rough ride they had. The Rejects were certainly a big influence for me. Seeing a bunch of kids that looked just like me on Top of the Pops was all it took. What I didn't realise was what they were going through during those early years. I never stopped listening to their early stuff. Now after reading the book I want to hear more of their later heavy rock. Incidently, if you search google video or you tube for "UK Subs Top of the Pops" about the third hit is "Teenage". The crowd are virtually motionless......apart from this small bunch of herberts just off stage to the right who are pogoing & jumping about, just as Stinky says they were.
