The Jams

Who?
Who. That's who.

It's funny. The Brits gave the world menswear as we know it. Then we Americans took it and twisted it and give it back as our own thing, a style to be often imitated but never quite stolen.

Americans gave the world electric guitars, drum kits, and rock 'n roll. Then the Brits took it and twisted it and gave it back as their own thing, a style (punk, metal, psychedelic, etc.) to be often imitated but never quite stolen.

I don't care what anyone says, punk rock was born in
America. Just like jazz, blues, and rock n roll.

No arguments about that here. But there's no denying the Brits on that one either.

Oh I agree with you completely on that. That collection of islands has put out some, if not a majority of, the most incredible music of all time. I'm sort of a weird anglophile for that reason alone...
