A prequel to The New Punk For Old Ears mix. This is a mix for my 2 teenage sons to show them that punk didn't start with Blink-182!Due to the limitations of a single CD, I've once again applied my "one artist, one song" rule which allows me to give exposure to more artists. Otherwise I could just put "Nevermind The Bollocks" up here and leave it at that!

I've included the Godfathers of Punk to give some perspective, but the majority of songs come from that "golden age of punk"; 1977-1978 and then a few early 80's tracks.

Some South African punk bands appear here as well, including The Asylum Kids which featured Robbi Robb, and The News with 'Tudor Convertable' which is an early mash-up of 'I'm Henry The VIII, I Am' with 'Greensleeves'.

Ha! Lots of great old favourites here, Brian. Love all of this. I saw Ramones, sham69 and the undertones in concert 1979-80. Ah, those were the days!

If I were to make a punk mix a lot of this would be on it!

It's obvious from this mix that you are a musical genius.
