If you think that punk music should be like a McDonalds burger, ie:- utterly predictable and the same every time then your view differs from Tenpole’s!
“The spirit of punk has always been there – it’s something to do with rebellion, e.g. Jerry Lee Lewis or Keith Richards, just happens that in 1976 they named this spirit ‘Punk’.! ” say’s Ed.
Tenpole was glad to find out what he was at last, for he’d been playing guitar and trying to write great songs in that spirit since he was a boy, long before 1976 came along.
“Punk is an attitude not a form of music, ask Steve Jones!!? Say’s Tenpole, ” I date back to the birth of punk rock when it was all about being original, create your own look, and before the time when it became a competition to see which band could sound the most similar to another! I’ve always rebelled against uniformity.
If it is just a simple formula then it is not subversive, and if there is no subversion, ladies & gentlemen, it ain’t Punk!!” “At the moment I’m trying to see how much excitement can be generated with a man, a guitar, & an audiences.
If you have to label what I play, call it Rock’n’Roll. Ever onward my fellow being’s! Avoid stagnation: whatever else it is, Punk is surely anti-stagnation!?” “By the way, all your view’s on what punk represents are as true & valid as mine, however different, we all think our opinion is the right one, but who can judge??
