    the music i love is punk and reggae, but i mostly go to soul/funk clubs, never punk nights (they're always shite) so i'm after some fucked up punk with a bit of soul, funk or reggae in it, some of the bands i've found so far have been...


    mAKE uP...fucking amazing

    Dub Narcotic...can never find their stuff, what's the best to order?

    The Slits...3-piece woman band playing punky reggae? perfect

    P.I.L....what's the best to get?

    Liquid Liquid...saw them live last month, amazing

    and a few more of the early 80's New York Noise, UK punk/dub crossover type bands, but the soul/punk thing is what i'm after now, from any era, any suggestions would be grand, cheers

    shit man, of course i love Bad Brains! how could i forget!?

    not a fan of Fishbone though, don't like the slightest hint of metal in my music

    The Clash i've meant to get some of for ages, i only have a dub version of Bankrobber, which is excellent. but i never realised the Damned had anything like that, will investigate

    most of the rest i've never heard of, but will look up cheers

    I could mention Mad Caddies, but I'm not sure if they're what you're looking for..They mix ska and punk, with the whole trumpet and trombone thingy going on. It's really good, so if you're into punk you should check the out.
