Ur Punks

The other day in class we had a lecture from Kandia Crazy Horse about Afro Punk where she mentioned the concept of the "ur punk." She says that the Ur Punk is Arthur Lee who influenced Jimi Hendrix and the Doors and who was influenced by James Brown and Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

This guy is Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Primordial Punk? I don't know. But I get to learn about this stuff in school. ^_^
