View all copies of this ISBN edition:

PUNK 77 covers the beginnings of the San Francisco Punk Rock scene through the Sex Pistols concert at Winterland in January, 1978, in interviews and photographs by James Stark. James was among the many artists involved in the early punk scene. His photos were published in New York Rocker, Search & Destroy and Slash, among others. His posters for Crime are classics and highly prized collectors items. Contains over 100 photos, including many behind-the-scenes looks at the bands who made things happen: Nuns, Avengers, Crime, Screamers, Negative Trend, Dils, Germs, UXA, etc. Interviews with the bands and people on the scene give intimate, often darkly humorous glimpses of events in a Please Kill Me (Legs McNeil) style.

About the Author:

James Stark's photographs were published in NEW YORK ROCKER, SLASH, SEARCH & DESTROY and other publications, and his posters for the band Crime are highly-prized collectors' items. James still rides a motorcycle and takes photographs, while pursuing his current obsession: Portuguese history, culture and cuisine.


I would recommend this book not only for old-timers looking for nostalgia, but especially to young Punks who have no idea how this all got off the ground, who take today's Punk for granted, to see how precarious it was at birth, what a fluke it was, and to perhaps be able to get a fresh perspective on todays scene needs... -- TY, MAXIMUMROCKNROLL

The photos themselves, a generous 115 of them, are richly satisfying. They're the kind of photos one wants to see... -- Kit Drumm, PUNCTURE
