In the words of The Mysterious Paul Merde from down under
G'day punters, Here are ten of my favourite punk guitarists in no particular order that influenced me and made me pick up a guitar and get crackin' 23 years ago (you'd think I would have improved by now haha)..
The Aussie buzzsaw genius thrashed his Gibson SG for 3 punk albums before the Saints went all jazzy and progged out...the well known footage from the live gig at Paddington Town Hall 1977 is all you need to know..This Perfect Day and Misunderstood showcase his savage and slightly dissonant riffery.
Aussie hardcore legends Depression are still going 30 years later..Smeer had a nasty trebly distorted sound that was punctuated with short blasting leads and whammy grabs. Thrashy and aggressive with the snottiness of punk, and in 1982 there was no one like them. Extremely underrated.
The Damned were a like a punk version of Motorhead...a bus full of speed freaks out of control on a nightmare highway, at least for the first few records until they went goth in the 80s...James had the dirtiest , grottiest tone imaginable and was the musical force behind the early Damned LPs.
Deniz Tek got most of the press for Radio Birdman with his songwriting, flashy leads and presentation but Masuak is a force in his own right with classic restrained open chord rhythm guitar that is the backbone of the Birdman canon. Intense and solid in presence with a weird other-worldly nature to his guitar sound, he was integral to the whole and it would not have worked without him. He proved this by going on to play with the Hitmen, Screaming Tribesmen and other punk/alternate bands in Australia through the 80s.
