Item ID: 286257

This exhaustive book, based on over 200 interviews with the participants, chronicles not only the good and the great, the icons of the punk movement, but celebrates some of the fantastic lost bands and music of the era, as well as the cash-ins and artistic failures. There are detailed accounts, often at variance with conventional wisdom, about the career paths of the Pistols, the Clash, the Damned, the Buzzcocks, the Stranglers and Siouxsie & The Banshees. It is an exhaustive A-Z overview of the phenomenon, including extensive biographical notes, complete discographies, and a buyer's guide to help sort the wheat from the chaff among the thousands of CD reissues that have emerged in the last decade. Many of the accompanying photographs have never been published before.
