Punk is Dead, Punk is Everything


By Bryan Ray Turcotte and Doug Woods

Back by popular demand in a new paperback edition, Punk is Dead exposes the lasting impact of punk on visual culture worldwide. Hundreds of flyers, photos, set lists, vintage fashions and other ephemera from punk bands big and small are jammed into this menacing volume.

Punk is Dead is massive, featuring a wide spectrum of bands that initially ignited the scene, and later fueled its global expansion. Contributing writers such as Wayne Kramer, Arturo Vega, Kid Congo, David Yow, Annie Anxiety, Duane Peters, Marc McCoy, Tony Alva, Don Bolles, Trudie and Pat Smear flesh out the visual assault.

It also features hard hitting interviews with Ian Mackaye, one of the most respected voices of the DIY music underground, and Malcolm McLaren, likely the most impactful promoter of the early punk movement.
