8. Exactly
Thanks for this list, I'm proud to say I have records by at least 10% of these artistes.

It is not much remembered, for example, that Johnny Rotten wanted the Sex Pistols to sound more like Captain Beefheart. But there was a staunch avant-gardist strain in punk, coming from many quarters. I got to talk to Tom Verlaine once, who compared one of Television's songs to Schoenberg. And it worked the other way too-- when my favorite band on this list, Henry Cow, broke up, their keyboard player started a punk band called The Work.

Now I gotta take out my L. Voag album... man, those were the days!
