Thanks for your comment! Yes, it was mostly a first-generation punk phenomenon, in the sense that many of the bands from back then consisted of musicians who had already been playing awhile in other genres. Later, it was easy for teens to set out to be punk bands when they first picked up their instruments. I think that's one of the reasons why proficiency gradually came to be accepted in punk circles. The absence of skill came to be viewed as a developmental stage more than a state of mind.
