Very lively UK Punk 1976 Panel at SXSW covered by Austin Chronicle
This was written by a real punk musician scribe, Tim Steegall.... thanks for caring the way you do...
“It’s the howl of the underclass,” roared Vivien Goldman, editor in 1976 of UK music weekly Sounds and now “punk professor” at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in New York City.
Asked by panel moderator Crispin Parry of arts agency British Underground to define “punk,” Goldman’s answer was a suitable start to a lively discussion seeking to define and immerse in amber a culture and a moment resistant by nature to such academic dissection.

No Future – 1976 and the Birth Of Punk in the UK panelists: (l-r) Crispin Parry, Vivien Goldman, Will Hodgkinson, Horace Trubridge, and Oliver Burslem
