Richard Hell & The Voidoids - Blank Generation


I was discussing the true origins of punk with Gary the other day and we finally agreed that one person was more responsible for the so called "punk" sound/scene/mindset than anyone else and that someone was Richard Hell.

In the mid 70's right here in New York City, down on the Bowery Richard Hell was living a scene he single handedly invented. A culture and an attitude that people like Malcolm McClaren could only steal and repackage but never could have created on their own.

Visit for more information or go to and buy this awesome album.
