5.0 out of 5 stars a handbook on leaving the 20th century, 6 April 2006
This review is from: Punk Rock: An Oral History (Paperback)
this book brought tears to my eyes. there have been a few books on the punk phenemonon, most of which have focussed on the products and players of the king's road scene from personal perspectives. john robb's book, however, recalls for me the feelings and diversity, the contradictions, arguements and certainty which made actors out of fans (consumers/spectators).
i respect this book for exploring the divisions which arose when punk rock shattered. this is the only book i have seen which acknowledges the anarcho scene and the contribution that crass made. maybe because it was so underground it's hard to research for a book, but someone should record it... c'mon tony d, you must have finished jugglng with chainsaws by now!
i do take issue with the book's apologising for nazism in oi music, though. for gary bushell to say it was a mistake, sorry, is just not good enough. in a situation like that you are the problem if you are not part of the solution and gary, you did nothing to decry the facism that you could have done.
but that's how good this book is, it's got me debating the points all over again!
