The Corner

The one and only.



Robert, I’d vowed not to do any more on the punky-cons controversy (lots of e-mail on this whole topic by the way, interestingly), but I have to disagree with you on who you categorize as ‘superstars’. In the old country, at least, both the Damned and the Stranglers (saw ‘em once in 79 – the guy I went with managed to lose a shoe for some, unexplained, reason) were also considered to be in the top rank.

Thanks though for reminding me about the Undertones and, of course, “Another Girl, Another Planet”. Memories!

Expect some criticism over your inclusion of Plastic Bertrand. That trendiest of Belgians (or was he French?) already came under fire from some of my correspondents a couple of days ago…
