I was a 15 year old growing up in a suburb of Greater Manchester when punk hit the UK in '76. It was of no lasting interest to me. My musical taste had been prog rock / heavy rock from the late 60's / early 70's and, aside from The Stranglers and The Clash (who weren't really punk, IMO, and whose albums I bought) I couldn't have cared less about what punks thought about Disco or the bands I liked. I just kept on liking them and buying their albums, going to their gigs. I did see gigs by quite a few of the punk bands in the '76 to early 80's, more out of curiosity than anything else, but usually came away with little more than a faint headache. They didn't change my world and I didn't buy into theirs. I really didn't like disco much, either - although I've often heard it said that if you look at a rock fan's record collection you'll find albums by The Carpenters and/or Abba. I have both.
