    still think urban blitz,unknown wrecks,euphoric vois,village idiots and violent phobia were better Cork punk bands.Also The Kidz and Berserker were much more of a punk in yr face sound.The Kidz actually released a demo e.p. whatever that is which is gold dust and think Berserker released vinyl too before they mellowed into reggae and the lounger performing sounds of Belsonic Sound.2 great bands early on.Alsoproving that there were punk band in Cork as early as 1977and certainly 1978.
