One Chord Wonders

Today UK Chancellor Philip Hammond delivered his autumn 2017 budget speech. My reaction..? a song from back in the days when things were still real: this track is called One Chord Wonders, released in 1977, and the band are ‘The Adverts’, who were heavily inspired by ‘The Sex Pistols’. ‘The Adverts’ can barely play their instruments, but despite this One Chord Wonders perfectly captures the essence of UK punk rock during its early years…

One Chord Wonders is one of my top five UK punk rock songs, all of which are featured in a post I made on New Year’s Eve 2011, at the same time that President Obama was signing the NDAA 2012 into law, a historical and truly terrifying moment when American citizens had their liberty removed.

As usual, I only wish I was making all this stuff up.
