Playlist 5 July

There are several veterans of the Punik Wars who wear it well, among them Siouxsie Sioux. In the recent Punk Britannia series, she didn't look much different from her high kickin' days with the Banshees. Good cheekbones go a long way, as does a decent tune like tonight's opener. Punk rock more than goth, which is how it should be.
Is Can's hit single 'I Want More' krautrock ? It can't really be. I mean, they even appeared on Top Of The Pops with it. Look it up on the internet and marvel at Noel Edmonds who had obviously just come from a wedding that morning, judging by his tie.
