Not only were the Partisans one of the best and most inspiring bands from the third wave of British Punk. Hailing from Wales, originally starting out in 1978, they not only channeled all the melody and magic of their influences (Sex Pistols /Clash / Ramones/ Vibrators / Stiff Little Fingers /UK Subs) from the first two waves of UK and American punk they added a refreshing amount of youthful energy and best of all a hard 'kids on the street' edge to their sound.
