On August 16th 1974 The Ramones played for the first time as a 4-piece band at CBGBs. We’re taking the celebration of punk music in all it’s forms to a week long party over the airwaves, including over 20 shows playing punk and punk related music.
In July, the British Library held an exhibition called Punk 1976-78. In the adverts The Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Buzzcocks were mentioned.
There was one problem, no women were mentioned and Viv Albertine of The Slits noticed this. Albertine crossed out the names of the bands and wrote “The Slits, X-Ray Spex, Siouxsie & the Banshees. (What about the women!!).”
As we celebrate the British punk and post punk movements for CJAM's Radio Brain Drain week long celebration of punk, we'll take a close look at the contributions of Viv, Poly, Siouxsie and all their fellow musicians.
