UK82 is the second wave of british punk, UK77 was the first. 77 was more popular, because it was the beginning of a new genre of music. By the end of the 77 movement most "punks" "grew out of" punk rock music. UK82 is harder, faster, somewhat darker and the fashion was better too.
Varukers, Court Martial, Crux, Broken Bones.

UK82 actually started in 1979 with bands like the Threats.
The biggest battle during the UK82 era was punks vs mods.

UK82, street punk and 77 are the only real punk.
