Great website for all things Punk in '77

Have a loook at The Ignerent's gig at the Vortex is logged at - the Vortex misspelt the band as The Ignerants! We supported Wayne County and the Electric Chairs, Local Operator and the Killjoys on September 6th 1977. The Ignerents supported a number of other punk bands at that time including 999 (Margate Dreamland), Chelsea (Marquee, August 10th 1977)and The Only Ones.

Paul at Punk77 has written a great page on the Ignerents at
