I am so happy and grateful that I grew up at the time that I did. Grateful for Punk and alternative comedy. Stewart Lee is a wonderful human being.
2nd Jun 2022 – I always was annoyed that I was just a little too young for the first wave of punk but in the end, it was probably better because many folks from, and inspired by, the first wave ended up leaving it all behind or kind of disowning it. From the second wave, post-punk, UK82, hardcore, anarcho-punk etc the DIY aesthetic became ingrained and influenced every part of life.
I suppose we all rationalise our formative years in one way or another.
