Hardback book with postcard set

This is the story of Punk in Britain as told by an array of less heard voices – Una Baines, Rob Symmons, Richard Boon. An excavation of the corners.

It maps things out in style, reflecting the energy of the times, the madness, the mundanity. It’s a solid primer with Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned stuff but it’s the other voices that make it – female voices, weirdos, outsiders.


‘A speed read that mirrors the tempo of the times, an oral history from protagonists to punters. For those who weren’t they were, now you are.’

Richard Boon (Buzzcocks manager).
