The first 10 punk singles bought by Tim Burgess of The Charlatans

Tim Burgess has always been a fan of punk.

A music nut, he is a fan of most forms of music but punk was the formative music that really affected him in his youth and set him off on the trail.

We knew a long time ago about his love of punk so we were intrigued by the first punk singles he went out and bought when he was actually 10/11 years old- one of the mini army of pre teens captivated by the form, so we asked him and he sent back his list of first punk singles that he purchased.

Tim : ‘There is No Pistols, mostly cos all my mates had Never Mind The Bollocks

The first Sex Pistols single I bought was ……………….ahem !! C’mon Everybody
