For most local punks, it’s more of a fashion than a decadent social trend. For most, the new wave is a hair wave. Mostly, it’s just raw rock’n’roll and the outrage caused is little different than the outrage caused by Mick Jagger when he was young.
– Neil Roberts
I think The Doomed are probably the best band in the Southern Hemisphere. Best new wave band. Auckland punks are rubbish, crap.
– Johnny Abort (Aka Dick Driver) Doomed lead singer
I don’t think you can classify us as punk. Really we could categorised with new wave but I don’t think punk is a very good word. It’s too narrow. Punks are the audience.
– Zero (Suburban Reptiles)
