I was only in Aldi for a brief visit this afternoon, but during that time I saw:
- a middle-aged bloke wearing a Union Jack Sex Pistols tshirt
- a teenager in a leather jacket with various band logos on the back, most of which I didn’t recognise but I couldn’t miss the Dead Kennedys one
- a bloke wearing what I thought was a Burnley shirt. (Maybe it was their manager Sean Dyche who guested on our podcast last month!) But when I got closer I realised it was a West Ham styled Cockney Rejects shirt. The bloke wearing it even made a comment on my punk attire as well (the “Strummerville” top shown in my photo on this page)
So including me, that makes 4 punk rockers in 5 minutes. A hit rate of 1 punk every 75 seconds!
But that wasn’t even it! In the car park outside I saw another bloke sporting a grey Buzzcocks tshirt. Looked pristine so I’m guessing it’s from a recent tour.
Old punks never die, they just like to pay less for their groceries.
