9781889307145: Punk '77: An Inside Look at the San Francisco Rock n' Roll Scene, 1977

More than just a new direction in music, punk rock ignited a cultural revolution. Its intense, exciting emergence in the Bay Area is captured in Punk 77. In more than 100 searing, fully-captioned photos — including early shots of The Damned, The Ramones, Blondie, Nico, and Devo — the book traces the punk movement in San Francisco from its earliest days through the January 1978 Sex Pistols concert. Interviews and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the Dils, Penelope Houston, Negative Trend, the Nuns, Dirk Dirksen, V. Vale, and others provide insights and illumination into both the music and the social, political, and economic factors punks rebelled against. While many of these colorful early adopters have died, their influence is still felt in the music of East Bay artists like Green Day and Rancid, and their incendiary thoughts live on in this inspiring, essential historical document — a counterculture manual for subversion.

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.

Book Description Re/Search Publications, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Expanded ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cultural Writing. PUNK 77 is told in a mosaic of anecdotes, rants, gossips, and self-aggrandizements by the prototypical punks, scenesters, musicians and artists who lived the explosion of the San Francisco punk scene circa 1977, ending with the Sex Pistols infamous last performance January 14, 1978. 200 photographs of both punk luminaries and unsung heroes capture the filth, fury, gritty glam, outrageous theatrics and devious antics of, among others: the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Ramones, Germs, Nico, the Damned s first U.S. tour, the Screamers (the best band never recorded), Jello Biafra, Avengers, Crime, Nuns, etc. This uncensored book gives an inside look at an edgy, DIY, black humor consciousness fueled by poverty, anger, sheer guts and imagination. This 3rd edition features an interview with photographer James Stark and a new portfolio of forty more photographs. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781889307145
