Agreed, although they do perhaps deserve a couple more punk points 
than you might think, because:
1) after leaving  pub rockers Ducks Deluxe in early 1975 and before 
forming The Motors, Nick Garvey formed a band called The Snakes with 
(future Motors drummer) Ricky Slaughter and none other than Rob 
Gotobed, later of Wire; 
2) after The Motors split up, Slaughter (orig. Richard Werner) became 
a member of Fallen Angels with his cousin, Knox of The Vibrators.

Small world, innit?
