Just the one question in today's quiz. Which future punk rock genius is this? Picture taken in 1973.
Is it that bloke out of the Stranglers?
It's the bloke from the Damned
It's Lemmy without the warts. No it's not, it's Brian James - founder of the Damned and chief songwriter for their first two albums. Andysays is correct, presuming that's who he meant.
Hazard a guess at Joe Strummer with those sideburns
I did used a mix of goole images search cross referenced with some machine learning facial recognition systems, and its isambard kingdom brunel
For good measure, here's Captain Sensible at around the same time..
Is it Lemmy?
And why is Mr Sensible using a saucer with a mug? What sort of a punk is he?
Answer already given upthread. It's the Damned's Brian James during his time in the band called 'Bastard' who were active from 1972 to 1975 or thereabouts - they didn't release any records although there are at least three unreleased tracks in the vaults.
It does look like Lemmy, that's who I thought it was when I first saw the photo. Coincidentally, 'Bastard' was also Lemmy's intended name for the band that became Motorhead.
Pfft. EVERYONE used saucers with mugs up til punk.
I'm with it now. It's Brian not Tony for starters and no ive never ever used a saucer with a mug.
He has a spoon on the saucer as well. Dear oh Dear. How the other half live.
Well he was in the dammed or rather the doomed as they were called at the time.
he really looks like alan vega.
Everybody looked like that. Except skinheads. And squaddies. And lots of other people. But except for them, everybody looked like that. I know I did.
A sensible one?
You'll never get higher than nco in the sensible stakes without a saucer for your tea cup
