Verse Chorus Press, September 2005. Paper Back. Used - Very Good. Item #237175
ISBN: 1891241184

The bands that spearheaded the late 1970s punk scene in Australia--the Saints, Birthday Party, Radio Birdman, and the Go-Betweens--are among the most important of their time. Inner City Sound is the classic account of the explosive development of that scene. Original articles from fanzines and newspapers, together with almost 300 photographs, vividly portray the creative ferment of the period and the dozens of bands that sprang up in the wake of the pioneers. First published in late 1981, Inner City Sound soon fell out of print. It became a lost classic, so sought after that it has been bootlegged like the rare singles listed in its discography. This new edition contains 32 extra pages of articles, photos, and discographic data, which take the story through to 1985, when Nick Cave, the Go-Betweens, the Triffids, and others began to break through internationally.

Quarto (Eight & 1/4-inch x Ten & 3/4-inch) Clean, sound, expaned reissue (with new material) of 1982 edition.
