simon reynolds Wrote:the initial big bang of punk scattered shards hurtling outwards in all directions, each fragment nurturing its own version of what punk had been 'all about' and its own vision of how best to further the spirit. you can feel the urgency in the careers of individual bands too: the giant leaps made across three albums by talking heads (more songs about buildings and food, fear of music, remain in light) or pil (public image, metal box, flowers of romance). there was a total commitment to modernism and innovation, an absolute confidence that there were still virgin frontier zones for rock music to explore, an impatience to get to the future ahead of everybody else.

this is absolutely spot on Xyxthumbs
