Try some Teenage Goodness and the Jerks as well and Lydia Lunch - Queen of Siam. James Chance and the Contortions are another bunch very polarising (I can't stand them).

Interesting to see DNA compared to Captain Beefheart - I was actually watching the BBC doccie " The artist formerly known as Captain Beefheart " yesterday , thinking that there's a lot of punk in Beefheart .

Very much so, Red Crayola were of a similar ilk.  And a bit of Henry Cow (both bands later worked with punk bands).  Btw the goodness was actually 'J E S U S'

Yeah , I realize .  ;D They are on the " No New York " compilation , and produced by Brian Eno it seems . I'll check out Red Crayola too .

OK - a few more for anyone who is interested:

Foetus Inc. - Sink (a compilation of singles, unreleased and compilation tracks in various styles):

Nation of Ulysses - 13 Point Program to Destroy America
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpq-GVY4k_0

Rocket From The Crypt - Circa Now!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPRN8W6oK48

Redd Kross - Born Innocent
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMJHEiUjsL4

Fugazi - 13 Songs (their first two EPs as a single album)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2RyoRG2vs8

All bands were great live as well (well, Foetus was a little crap at the end as he did the worst cover of 'I am the Walrus' ever), particularly Fugazi (intense and a little straight edge for me) and RFTC (matching bowling shirts, slicked back quiffs, stylish)
