Summary

This book is your gateway to the safety-pinned, leather-clad, mohawk-toting, anti-establishment, and generally badass Punk movement.

What makes punk... punk? We might all know the Sex Pistols from the opening bar of their songs. But how do we place the punk movement in the context of the wider zeitgeist of the time? And how do the various international offshoots of punk - American, British, Australian - intersect and overlap? Well, that's precisely what DJ and author Steve Wide explains in this book.

In these pages, Steve explains the social climate of Thatcherism, along with a detailed timeline of foundational bands (as well as connected artists, like Damien Hurst, and other subversive genres like Britpop). There are breakdowns of the most iconic punk artists, as well as fashion designers, record labels, DJs, producers, engineers and magazines - all of which applied their own layer to the punk patchwork. There are deep dives into controversies, rivalries, and band breakups. And lastly, there's a dissection of how evolutions of punk carry on today, in recorded music and in wider pop culture.

If you, or someone close to you, is obsessed with the nitty-gritty of the Punk movement, then this book is a must-have.
