I ve been reading a couple pages at a time of Punk 365 for the past six months It s fun to dip into it every few days and take a trip down memory lane I became aware of punk just as it was evolving into hardcore and being superseded by New Wave I still have a torn rotator cuff from slam dancing at some grungy little dive back in late 79.There are a lot of great photos from that time which show you exactly how crappy those places were Half the time there was no one in the place while the rest of [...]
Some interesting photos, albeit far from all punk related, but the lack of any educated copy editor results in some shockingly bad captions accompanying the images, from banal musings to irrelevant cut paste quote jobs to endless factual errors Truly embarrassing, this resembles nothing so much as a junior high school project, with writing to match.
Punk 365 By Holly George Warren Foreward by Richard Hell.I am totally thankful to Jet for giving me this book at Xmas it is a real treat.Finally a great coffee table book on Punk featuring in a series of books of 365 photos on one subject such as say the Civil War or Golf Courses so naturally on to Punk.It covers it from it s origins with the Velvet Underground and Stooges MC5 through to Dgeneration in 1992 but written and published in 2007, so the bios and information on the whereabouts of the [...]
it s got killer photos if you love rock n roll history like your life depends on it then this is indispensable if you love good photography but hate rock n roll you ll STILL love this, the photos are really that good there s too many great ones to mention but personal faves include Iggy Pop onstage in moccasins, John Cale with a bowl cut and a bass, the Bad Brains, and every one that has Paul Simonon from The Clash that guy is the SHIT
Excellent photographic overview of the 1970 s punk scene ,from the famous to the obscure.It has an insiders type feel as it was edited by a woman who was heavily involved in the scene at that time.As a huge Pistols fan, I can t help but wishing that they had been given the same amount of coverage as the Ramones.That and the puzzling latter inclusion of several artists that have nothing to do with punk prevent me from giving the book a full 5 stars.
The last section gets a little off subject, in an effort to tie punk to pop, at the expense of missing a few pretty important figures.
Not exactly reading, but nice photos from back in the day.
Amazing photographs from the NY, LA, and London Punk Post Punk scenes from 1973 1989.
some odd additions and omissions but this is 700 pages of some really amazing photos.
Great photographs and interesting contextual information.
I absolutely love this book Of course I love photos, old photos, old photos of shows from when it all started I love the layout of photos on the right and a small amount of text on the left.
I thought it was wonderful
Great overview It d be my coffee table book, if I was the type to have a coffee table.
Whenever I want to listen to something new, I check this book for inspiration.
