"Really, the generation of 16-18 year olds haven't had a music they could call their own. Woodstock's no good for them, nor boys and girls going out together under the silvery moon. Their reality's a lot bleaker than that. So it's back to three-minute songs, simple melodies, thumping it out. The content is a bit heavier because it's 1977 and not 1957" (Malcolm McLaren, manager of the Sex Pistols). Scrapbook-style collection of black-and-white photographs, reproductions and texts exploring the 1970s UK punk scene, featuring the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Jam, The Silts, Generation X, Siouxsie Sioux, The Damned, The Buzzcocks. Ray Stevenson photograph of Soo Catwoman on the cover. Originally published in the UK as "Shockwave." Light wear to extremities. Near fine. Item #1125
