The forgotten stories of punk


Special edition: the forgotten stories of punk
Route 128 The car, the radio, the night - and rock's most thrilling song
It's been called the first punk record. The Sex Pistols used to cover it. And yet Jonathan Richman's Roadrunner is only a hymn to a suburban ringroad in Massachusetts. Laura Barton went in search of Route 128.
Alexis Petridis on the best of Richman
Liliput aka Kleenex Defunct punk
With lyrics like 'Hotch-potch, hugger-mugger, bow-wow, hari-kiri, hoo-poo', how could anyone forget late-70s punk outfit Liliput? John Harris comes over all nostalgic.
Alan McGee on 10 little-known records with big influence
Adam Ant and Jordan make for unlikely guests at the premiere of 'Saturday Night Fever' in 1977. 30 years of punk
And what better way to celebrate than with a gallery of images? I mean, other than booze and fisticuffs.
More forgotten punk - now remembered!
