BIRTH OF PUNK

Named ‘the hottest, sleaziest garage ever’ by NME in a review of the Ramones 1976, the Roundhouse played a fundamental part in the formation of the UK Punk scene. Many of you were there and have sent us your magnificent stories, which we share here. We’ve got original photos from the Ramones gig itself, as well as the post-punk crowd Blondie, Elvis Costello and more. Listen to the diaries of a hardcore gig-goer and the confessions of an 80s punk.
