Thanks again to YouTube for allowing us access to footage that might have otherwise been forever lost. This Australian TV clip features John Holmstrom and Legs McNeil of Punk Magazine definitively proving that no one has ever made a dime in rock journalism. The clip, which briefly drops into silence, reportedly shows the NYC-based pair in their offices some time in 1977, with the best bit coming after a clip of English punks are shown. The lines of demarcation between the various punk movements have gone down in the annals of history. Here, then, a first hand look at just how seriously they were taken.
