Cultural Writing. PUNK '77 is told in a mosaic of anecdotes, rants, gossips, and self-aggrandizements by the prototypical punks, scenesters, musicians and artists who lived the explosion of the San Francisco punk scene circa 1977, ending with the Sex Pistols' infamous last performance January 14, 1978. 200 photographs of both punk luminaries and unsung heroes capture the filth, fury, gritty glam, outrageous theatrics and devious antics of, among others: the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Ramones, Germs, Nico, the Damned's first U.S. tour, the Screamers (the best band never recorded), Jello Biafra, Avengers, Crime, Nuns, etc. This uncensored book gives an inside look at an edgy, DIY, black humor consciousness fueled by poverty, anger, sheer guts and imagination. This 3rd edition features an interview with photographer James Stark and a new portfolio of forty more photographs.
