Some people consider much of punk rock just cruder, less-developed heavy metal but to me a lot of the best punk sounds like amped-up, sped-up, riled-up folk music.
Before they changed their name to, God's Little Monkeys (more here), Malcolm's Interview were an eighties English band driven by the rebellious aggression of both aged folk music and post-punk rock.
Malcom's Interview sole album, 1987' Breakfast in Bedlam, sees the band employ the ancient shanty,"Blow the Man Down, the (then) modern Billy Bragg anthem "It Says Here" and a volley of their own skiffle-speed creations, like "A Hundred Years".
Y'know COMMENTS are so appreciated here, not just for ego gratification or even as impetus to post more of the same (i.e. MRML would gladly post the 2nd God's Little Monkeys album, if there is sufficient commentary) but also because by adding your stories, your links, your evaluations (or even simply your gracious thanks) you make this blog so much more then it is with just me yammering to a cold, dark universe.
Speaking, at great length, of comments, that is the section wherein you will find the Breakfast in Bedlam link.
