There is no polemic between Prog and Punk in an historical context. Viewing the history of music in localized tribal terms becomes subsumed within a broader understanding of the history of (recorded) music. To maintain the polemic is funny, but only within its own context (guys in Anarchy t-shirts with spiky hair taking the piss out of space-cases in Cannabis symbol patchouli soaked t-shirts with greasy long hair), not in the broader context, where so-called Prog and Punk are being created in the same songs, like in Psychedelic Garage Punk for instance.
John Lydon pre-Sex Pistols, a photo he chose to have displayed in his book No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs. Since he became more financially secure after escaping the financial clutches of long term record industry "debt" he has contributed a lot of money to children's charities.
