2016 marks the 40 year anniversary of punk. The legacy of punk inspired a whole generation of bands, and its DIY ethos was central to its influence on music, style and politics.
Grime has often been compared to Punk in its energy, dynamism and DIY ethic. As a uniquely British genre of music, it’s also said to be rooted in, and emerged from, a particular urban geography and time.
In our Arts podcast, two writers, Jon Savage and Laura Brosnan (AKA Hyperfrank) are in conversation to discuss DIY music culture, and compare and contrast the punk and grime scenes.
