An erstwhile Mudcat member that we have not seen for ages, punkfolkrocker, was of the firm opinion that punk was modern folk. He was very likely right!

I suppose there is a recognised community of punks, I don't know enough about it.
I do think there are still some semi-traditional singers in the old tradition in the UK, but the most thriving tradition in the country is with the British Asian community who have some very accomplished singers who are traditional by any yardstick. I would like to think that the songs will be collected in the future, by someone with the correct knowledge. We also need to accept the songs as part of the diverse traditions of the UK if we don't already. I bet Ian Dury would approve.

There's a genre known as Post Punk that has been defined as follows:

"Post-punk music is an offshoot of punk rock that embraces greater ambition in terms of harmony, melody, rhythm, and lyrical content while retaining punk energy and urgency."

I've recently been along to see a gig with three such bands and indeed there is fine musicianship plus humour mixed in with environmentalist and anti-establishment lyrics. All for £10 on a Sunday afternoon at the famous Half Moon, Putney, so home in time for the Antiques Roadshow!

I remember hearing Ian Dury being interviewed on radio - he called the DJ a "diamond" for playing the latest release, and when asked if he and the Blockheads were New Wave he replied "Nah, we're permanent wave!"

Ian described his songs as built from rhyming couplets he noted down.
