I saw the Plasmatics at the Beach Theater sometime around 1981 or so.
I listened To Pere Ubu’s first album from ‘78 last night for the first time in a long while. Maybe strictly speaking it’s not ‘punk’, but it shares a common DNA. They coined the term avant-garage as a description. They never really made it big-time themselves, but are credited as an influence by many later bands.
