5.0 out of 5 stars An Important and Well Designed Document 1 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been involved in the punk scene since 1978 and this book really captures the art, the energy and the feelings of punk. No book could cover everything but I swear this book has fliers from every significant band and scene in it. I especially enjoyed the short articles and poems from punks in each scene. If you are interested at all buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing 22 Feb 2002
By a geriatric punk - Published on Amazon.com
An absolutely gorgeous book. Even if you don't [care] about punk rock, it would still be fascinating.
This is also an exceptional historical document. The history of the margins is lost so easily -- a book like this does a tremendous service to posterity.
As to the guy from SF who says that this book distorts history and gives "unnatural significance to marginal bands..." Well, it probably does, and so what??!! [....]

4.0 out of 5 stars a must for the counter culture coffee table! 27 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This artbook art does an admirable job of recapturing the spontaneity, dark humor and angst of a little known American DIY music scene: the punk rock underground of the late 70's and early 80's. For those unfamiliar with this type of free form art/social commentary/teen angst, this book will be a real eye opener. For those who eagerly awaited the next flier to appear on their local telephone pole directing them to the next Black Flag gig, this is one wickedly twisted stroll down memory lane.
The only criticism is the scarcity of fliers from parts of the country outside the east and west coasts. However, fans of Raymond Pettibone's amazing art will be pleased to revisit his early work. An added bonus is the written commentary by local scenesters and musicians who were there when these fliers first appeared. This is juxtaposed by the merciful lack of pompous art historical/criticism blather. Props to the editors/designers who put the whole thing together: the overall layout and design mirrors the art presented: immediate, spontaneous and in your face.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flyers, always cool 12 May 2006
By Patrick West - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not quite sure how the publisher afforded to print massive hardcover editions of what is essentially a collection of flyers, but i am thankful he did. I love flyers-- they are little pieces of history and art. The layout was unnecessarily jumbled and weird for no reasons many times. Plus the quotes from some punk/hardcore luminaries was uninspiring a best. But who cares ... the book is cool.
