Children of the Revolution

Has been hammering down with rain all day - not been able to go out so decided to revisit some old fashion music research with the aid of Pete Frame's 'rock family' trees.

Originally published in music magazines such as 'Sounds, NME, Melody Maker and Rolling Stone' in the 70's; the various family trees were eventually published in a book around 1980, followed by a second volume in about 1998?

They were meticulously compiled - no internet searches back then, only magazines, books, word of mouth & insider music industry knowledge!

This one is an extract from the first volume called 'Children of the Revolution 1976-78' follows the history of punk including information on The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Damned, Public Image Ltd & Siouxsie & the Banshees'

I spent many happy hours as a teenage 'rock researcher' digesting all the information on some of my favourite bands/musicians.
You won't fool them.

I remember those in the muso mags in the 70's very informative documents which showed some very surprising connections. :)

@swillinbillyflynn Thanks very much for your comments & fav - I found it fascinating as a teenager to trace the trees (I still love rock n roll trivia!).
