technical punk?

me and my friend were talking the other day how our band's sound would be, and he's telling me that "technical" punk music isn't possible, and i was wondering..well, is it? can't there be ya know..van halen-type leads and solos in punk? or is it just like my friend said, and not possible at all?

Isn't technical punk an oxymoron? When punk music started, it was played as a rebellion AGASINT the technical music of the day. Technical punk wouldn't make any sense.

Yeah it kinda goes against the genre.

Pentatonic leads = punk

32nd note tapping trills = not at all punk (and not good either)

Black Flag's Slip it In had a lot of good soloing and some more tehnical riffs. People go on and on about Jimmy Page being a great guitarist, but he's no Greg Ginn.

I wish I was familiar with Harmolodics and all that jazz.

That reminds me another SST band the Meat Puppets had some nice solos and such but nothing shred like.

Pentatonic stuff. Like Backwater. (Although I suppose they weren't really punk by that point but still.)
