“A clear, unprejudiced account of a difficult subject.” —Jon Savage, author, England’s Dreaming
"What united punk . . . was the tension between realistic lyrics decrying conformity and repression and the sonic jolt that undermines musical predictability . . . . In chapters titled 'Formation,' 'Naming,' 'Looking,' 'Listening' and 'Framing,' Laing dissects the strategies claimed by punk." —John L. Murphy, spectrumculture.com
"This is a reasoned and well researched history of those times, it explains where the (punk) movement came from and how it fitted into the social patterns of the times." —Adrian Bloxham, louderthanwar.com
"If not a defining text on 70s Punk, then certainly one of the most unbiased and articulate of its kind." —Steve Scanner, scannerzine.com
