Product description

Review

""The England's Dreaming Tapes" is undoubtedly the best interview-based book on British punk published thus far. It's an indispensable documentary resource that offers panoramic insight into UK punk's most innovative and influential stage; it manages to immerse the reader in the visceral rush and the sheer creative energy of the period at the same time as it provides measured, incisive commentary on that period." --Wilson Neate, "Blurt"

""The England's Dreaming Tapes" takes you back to the genesis, to the very beginning of the cult, back to a time when Poly Styrene was a hippy, when Steve Diggle and John Lydon had long hair, when Siouxsie Sioux was a disco kid. This book holds the provenance of punk, and identifies, through the words of the 59 people Savage interviews, its very essence. . . .Everyone is here--all the bands, all the protagonists, all the club-runners, all journalists, shopkeepers, photographers, and the rest--and it is an absolute joy." --Dylan Jones, "GQ (UK)"

Dylan Jones, "GQ (UK)""

"A journalist on a British music weekly at the time of punk, Savage succeeded in assembling a comprehensive cast of interviewees when he was writing "England s Dreaming "in the late 1980s, and their unedited voices, presented in this new context, bring the epoch alive with the force of oral history." Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, "The Financial Times""
