Punk gives voice to the punk generation 25 years on, remembering the mad, frenzied and often incoherent world of 1975-1979. the cultural movement that burrowed through Andy Warhol's Factory and the early 1970s New York underground, emerging triumphant, kicking and screaming at the top of the British pop charts. With nearly 100 contributors. Including specially commissioned interviews with members and managers of the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Ramones, the Heartbreakers, Slouxsle and the Banshees and many others, everybody who was part of punk as it grew in popularity is represented. Their memories are supported by hundreds of photographs, many previously unpublished. This book allows the reader to make up their own mind about the people and the lifestyle that became known affectionately as Punk.
