Most Helpful Guy
I was talking to a guy about it once, he had loads of them.
'Everyone brings up the old african tribal tradition, but it's not that. It's an image, a look. Like the punk image - they were nonconformists and had an image that separated them from society. That's what it's about, it's non-conformity and an image.'
He painted he a very clever oxymoron. While I could debate the genealogy of the punk ethos, what he said was still very clever.
