I'm a huge fan of Howard Devoto and all his work with Buzzcocks, Magazine, Luxuria, solo etc. Feed the Enemy is my blog set up to promote this. I make no money from the site nor is it linked officially to Howard or any of the related bands or individual members. It is just a fans blog, nothing more. If you don't like any of it. Well, that's your loss, not mine.

I Swear I Was There
'I Swear I Was There,' is a book written by David Nolan and features the reflections of some of those from the Manchester Punk Scene who were at the now infamous Sex Pistols two shows. The shows were put on by Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley and the youngest member of the audience was myself at both gigs, yes I swear I was there.

Him pretending to eat dog food on stage reminds me of what must have been my first exposure to punk rock...a segment on a tv show called Real People. It was like a talk show that featured reports on funny or bizarre stories around the US.ReplyDelete
Anyway...at one point during the segment they showed these pots and pans full of the most disgusting concoctions. I'm sure now it was a put on but, as a really little kid...it was horrifying. Those pots and pans are the image that comes to my mind every time I think of Punk Rock. Every time. Ha.
Fortunately Erik - HD refrained from actually doing this in the end. The idea was to bait Slaughter and the Dogs who were there at the time.ReplyDelete
