Fear of a Punk Planet

It would seem that punk rock has only American/British origins and sustainability, and I know for a fact that this is NOT the case. Since we have a worldwide forum here, please school us on what was going on in your corner of the globe-clips/pics would be great. We can debate where it came from until the end of time, but so much more is left out by focusing on a handfull of bands, that we miss some truly great and influencial groups.
Canada, for one, has had a great punk scene since day 1, and DOA still plays gigs(last time I checked). I'm sure Greg can clue us in there.
Looking forward to seeing who was/is your local faves and inspiration :D

Punk is an attitude.

We've been rocking it since 1776

I was translating an oral history of German punk (Verschwende deine Jugend -- waste your youth), basically the equivalent to "Please Kill Me" but have since been slightly derailed by: work and music.

There's some really good stuff from Germany (esp. "way back when") and much of it is really interesting/odd.

In Oz we had punk pioneers the Saints and Radio Birdman (both forming around '74), both influenced by the Stooges and MC5. Classic punk themes of alienation and disenchantment were already ingrained in the very healthy live rock scene here and this diluted the impact of UK punk. As a result, "pure" punk petered out, with its spirit carried by bands with a hard rock flavour (e.g. Midnight Oil), avant-garde pretensions (e.g. The Birthday Party) or a bit of both (e.g. Hunters and Collectors).

More Rattus, this time a live recording (8th June 1985). What makes this clip especially interesting in the bass guitar which is Rickenbacker (or a faker but video quality is so low that you can't really tell).
