so lately some of the punk music iv been writting has been kinda bluesishy, like the solo in it would be in the blues scale or one is actually in the 12 bar blues, but it just dosn sound very bluesy, just more punk
it sounds very different, but i kinda like it
so i was wonderin, are there any punk bands u kno that are heavily influenced by blues or have the blues incorperated in their work?

The Gun Club

They even use slide guitar.

Jeffrey Lee took everything way too seriously though.

They're still awesome though.

using the blues scale or pentatonic doesnt exactly make something bluesy........

Which is cool.

His politics however, are a little sketchy.

He seems to genuinely hate/fear "queers", and "sluts."

Still, I like some Fear songs.

You've probably heard of them, but Social Distortion have some bluesy songs. Drug Train and Coulda Been Me are actually 12 bar blues progressions.

I''ve actually been looking for some good blues influenced punk as well, thanks for making this TS.

Definately check out The Oblivians. I am just listening to their 'Soul Food' record and it completely takes the blues and just ****s it to pieces with some nasty sounding punk. In a good way of course ;)

A lot of Punk is influenced by bluesy solos. Listen to The Causalties. Their solos are very bluesy.

Definitely check out The Von Bondies(Lack of Communication, My Baby's Cryin', Pawnshoppe Heart), especially the earlier stuff. Their later stuff is really good too, but it has a cleaner sound and higher production. It's all really good though, if you hear their career beyong C'mon C'mon. They are perhaps my favorite punk blues band. Also, The Stooges have a bunch of good punk blues songs(I Need Somebody, Penetration, Dirt, T.V. Eye), and it's even it's own genre. It's my favorite, heh. The White Stripes are also regarded as a punk blues band, and I also second Gun Club.

I've gotten pretty bored of blues type music, and have been working on some diatonic speed licks and classical song structures, to make my music sound European, as opposed to the Americanised trash most Brits insist on churning out.

Interestingly, whenever I use the Mick Jones technique to come up with solos and leads, I always get diatonic stuff come up. One might think otherwise.

BrianApocalypse

It's not so much that I'm playing like Mick Jones, I just use the technique of recording a vocal solo over a backing track and then transcribing it.

Mick Jones isn't a blues wanker either, good stripped down Mick Ronson type thing :)

Everyone with brains loves Mick Ronson, may he rest in peace.

everyone needs to check out The Roosters and The Blue Hearts.
They're two Japanese punk groups from the 1980s that rely heavily on blues influences,....especially the Roosters, they combine the styles pretty much dead on with some other influences like surf and ska as well....but the Blue Hearts have some stuff too.

Not exactly Punk, but punk influenced and a lot of punk bands are willing to pay them lip service at the very least, Danzig utilized a lot of blues in his music, especially when John Christ was in the band.

haha, i'm not going to say anything about that band negative or positive.
i'll let you be the judge....and you have fine judgement

there's a lot of bad blood there i'd rather not revisit.
but what happened is me and joseph (the drummer from the old velisha) started this band after the breakup, but this band broke up, then we got it back together.

i was in a blues band for awhile with the old velisha bass player too http://www.myspace.com/electricgrease

and i was in a psychobilly band too http://www.myspace.com/knownassociatefresno but i sort of lost interest in the whole psycho thing.

Listen to the song 'Roll On' by The Living End, that has a really bluesy solo. They're more rockabilly than punk though. They aren't hxc punk by any stretch of the imagination, more like a mainstream band with punkish lyrics.
