Brooklyn, N.Y., band Old Monk has referred to its music as “Prog Punk,”
an interesting descriptor considering the two genres were diametrically
opposed back in the day. It reminds me of a scene from the excellent
documentary movie New York Doll, about bassist Arthur “Killer” Kane of
the Proto Punk band New York Dolls, where Chrissie Hynde and Morrissey
are sitting around railing against the excesses of Prog Rock and how it
actually birthed Punk.
