Punk party-line… in 1970!


While researching I came across a nugget I’d like to share. It’s an article about Alice Cooper in October 1970. In the interview Alice gives voice to a pretty spot-on version of punk rhetoric, usually associated with Ramones or Sex Pistols, five or 6 years later. This is the first evidence I’ve seen of the schism that characterized rock music in the 70’s and maybe ever since?
