Punk Attitude

by Kiko Matsing

Buzzcocks: Singles Going Steady (1979)

There’s a difference between what punk was and what it appeared to be. For me, it wasn’t the physical appearance that was the important thing. It wasn’t how the Sex Pistols dressed or the actual records themselves. It was the actual doing of them–and the humor that was involved… Viewed as an artistic thing… it was performance art. It was avant-garde. It was an adventure, something you launched yourself into. It was an alternative lifestyle.
