Young Punks In London Interviewed Five Years After "Anarchy In The U.K."

When you're young and obsessed with the punk rock subculture you can't help but believe you'll be in to the music, the spiky hair and the piercings for the rest of your life.

But being punk is something most people outgrow, and most punks trade in their mohawks and piercings for something more mundane after a while, remembering what it felt like to let your rebellious side fly in the face of convention.

Photographer Virginia Turbett was asked to interview young punks in London for The Face Magazine back in 1981, five years after the Sex Pistols song "Anarchy In The U.K." was released, which is often seen as the beginning of the punk rock subculture.

Virginia asks the young and dangerous about their favorite bands, when they started dressing punk and whether they'll be punks for life, and their answers were surprisingly unsnotty for a bunch of teen punks. I guess their mums raised them right!
