Was it punks or PBS? …
Punk rock started in the USA. Just about every English punk band wanted to do a remake of the Ramones’ first album, from the Sex Pistols to the Clash to the Buzzcocks on down . . . and if it wasn’t that album, it was usually the Stooges’ albums Fun House or Raw Power, or even the New York Dolls’ debut album.

Sadly, I think that part of British culture is dying....Like the Kinks put it, “There’s No England Now.”

‘The Tudors’: that Henry VIII was a real cut-up, huh?
I’m guessing by Catherine Howard he had pretty much decided he needed a nurse, not a wife.

I’m an Anglophile too, as a little kid with the Beatles, the Prisoner, classic Dr Who and many trips to the UK. And now, my current love, Alan Rickman. I feel at home in London — having read this article, now I want to go back!!!
