Through a detailed examination of the conditions under which punk emerged and declined, dave laing develops a view of the music as both complex and contradictory. Using examples from a wide range of bands, individual chapters use the techniques of semiology to consider the radical approach to naming (from johnny rotten to poly styrene), the instrumental and vocal sound of the music, and its visual images. Also included is a timeline of the punk era, discographies, and a bibliography!(this book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear)
