I did enjoy reading this, but realised a few pages in that I had in fact read it all before in Simon Reynold's (brilliant) 'Rip It Up and Start Again'. I believe the chapters are just taken directly from that book, so if you own that you won't need this. Luckily this was only £1 on the kindle edition so I didn't feel too ripped off.

So five stars for content but gets stars knocked off for not making it clear enough that this was not a new book by Simon Reynolds but old wine in a new bottle!

Good basic history of this period in music. However like any book of this type it is a subjective view. The author provides a great narrative for the bands like PIL and The Slits which he seems to be a fan of, but dismisses or ignores the likes of Killing Joke or Young Marble Giants who should surely form part of the discussion of this era of Music. He also devotes a chapter to Ska/Two Tone, which is music I love but I have never seen as being part of post punk?!
