AGMP presents PENETRATION
Penetration are a punk rock band from County Durham, England formed in 1976. Their debut single, "Don't Dictate", is now acknowledged as a classic punk rock single and their debut album, "Moving Targets" (1978), is still widely admired.
The band took their name from an Iggy & the Stooges song and played their first gig in October 1976. Their second gig was supporting The Stranglers at Newcastle City Hall. Significantly, the band also played at the now-legendary punk club The Roxy during its first 100 days. On the 9th of April 1977, the band appeared on the same bill as Generation X.
Early in their career, the band also supported The Vibrators and toured with the Buzzcocks and they boast the original Buzzcocks drummer, John Maher in the current line-up. Their long awaited 3rd album "Resolution" was released in 2015 and has received a great response from critics and fans.
Penetration are Pauline Murray, Robert Blamire, Steve Wallace, Paul Harvey & John Maher.
