GOD SAVE THE QUEEN PART 1
As anti-royalist as the Punks were, where would they be without them? Without the ripped red, white and blue of the Union Jacks or the safety pinned face of the Queen; even without Never Mind the Bollocks’ slew of abuse at HRH… what would be left of Punk? What would a counter culture be if they had nothing to fight against? Can the anarchic youth exist without an establishment?
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN PART 2
The influence of Punk is undeniable and there is no doubt that we have been influenced by and have been part of the subculture. We have been pleasantly surprised along the way, by how we resonate with not just a “cliche punk” subculture but far further into almost any type of independent underground and Avant Garde subculture – the powerful energy of the new, of the independent, the resourceful, the disruptive, and unexpected!

Tartan was banned in 1746 as the rebel clans in Scotland were brought under control and by the 19th century Tartan was further appropriated by the establishment as the dress for the landed classes and the aristocracy. It had been stealthy moved from local dress to symbolic pomp.
Only in the 20th century with the emergence of Punk did Tartan suddenly find itself re-appropriated and fashioned to oppose authority and regulation. It was a re-appropriation of the re-appropriated and its use now shared between the two opposites of British culture. Punk v Royalty.
