Product description

Review

Curator Andrew Bolton shows great calm and patience in the scope of his research into punk s frenetic effects. His underlying aim is to prove that punk was more than just the cliche of mohicans and bad skin, but was a swirling, chaotic period of great experimentation in style. No linear study, the book offers a wide-ranging overview of the persistence of punk s influence . . . The big coup of the book is its introductory essay by both Richard Hell and John Lydon, he who previously went by the name of Johnny Rotton." Charlie Porter, "V&A Magazine"--Charlie Porter"V&A Magazine" (08/01/2013)"
