Punk Press by The punk movement sprang up on the east coast in the late 1960s. It crossed the Atlantic and virtually exploded in London and Paris. This dynamic counter movement churned out heaps of photocopied, hand stapled fanzines that expressed ideas, music and works of art. Some became professional magazines. By creating its own press, the punk movement secured its place and its voice in the history of 20th century art and culture. The book Punk Press compiles the stunning graphics created by these publications, spanning from the East Village, to East London, to the Left Bank, featuring multiple collages, cutouts and handcrafted typography, standing as a visual tour through one of music's most influential movements.

Made in the UK by The second monograph by celebrated music photographer Janette Beckman captures 'the look' of the musicians and kids who were loudly defining an era that continues to reverberate throughout pop culture. Made in the UK documents the years between 1977 and 1983, a time when British music pushed every boundary. Due to Beckman's career within Melody Maker, she had unique access to the musicians topping the UK charts - icons of an era when music had an agenda. Beckman's gritty aesthetic placed her on good footing among the kids and the attitude in her portraits never dies.

Punk by Recreating the complete story of the punk phenomenon -- including where it came from and what it turned into -- Punk is a massive and visually stunning record of five years that changed the world: from 1975 to 1979. Collecting the testimony of more than 260 artists, record producers, designers, and journalists -- including John Cale, Debbie Harry, Joe Strummer, Maureen Tucker, Gerard Malanga, Lou Reed, Johnny Rotten, Danny Fields, Legs McNeil, Bob Gruen, David Byrne, Iggy Pop, Tommy Ramone, William S. Burroughs, Terry Southern, Cherry Vanilla, and Malcolm McLaren, former manager and ringleader of the Sex Pistols -- Punk brings to life the profound effect punk music had on global popular culture in the words of those who created it. With reverberations in style, fashion, attitude and philosophy, the birth of punk music released the greatest shockwaves in the popular culture since The Beatles. Punk tells the story through the words of the people who were closely tiedto the mania and through hundreds of contemporaneous color and black-and-white photographs.

Anyone Can Do It by For more than three decades, a punk underground has repeatedly insisted that 'anyone can do it'. This underground punk movement has evolved via several micro-traditions, each offering distinct and novel presentations of what punk is, isn't, or should be. Underlying all these punk micro-traditions is a politics of empowerment that claims to be anarchistic in character, in the sense that it is contingent upon a spontaneous will to liberty (anyone can do it - in theory). How valid, though, is punk's faith in anarchistic empowerment? Exploring theories from Derrida and Marx, Anyone Can Do It: Empowerment, Tradition and the Punk Underground examines the cultural history and politics of punk. In its political resistance, punk bears an ideological relationship to the folk movement, but punk's faith in novelty and spontaneous liberty distinguish it from folk: where punk's traditions, from the 1970s onwards, have tended to search for an anarchistic 'new-sense', folk singers have more often been socialist/Marxist traditionalists, especially during the 1950s and 60s. Detailed case studies show the continuities and differences between four micro-traditions of punk: anarcho-punk, cutie/'C86', riot grrrl and math rock, thus surveying UK and US punk-related scenes of the 1980s, 1990s and beyond.

We Got Power! by As teenagers in 1981, David Markey and his best friend Jordan Schwartz founded We Got Power, a fanzine dedicated to the hardcore punk music community in their native Los Angeles. Their text and cameras captured the early punk spirit of Black Flag, the Minutemen, Social Distortion, Youth Brigade and many others at the height of their precocious punk powers. In the process, the duo's amazing photographs also captured the dilapidated suburbs, abandoned storefronts and dereliction of the era - a rubble strewn social apocalypse that demanded a youth uprising!

Punk 45 by This book is a revelatory guide to hundreds and hundreds of original 7" record cover sleeve designs - visual artefacts found at the heart of the most radical and anarchistic musical movement of the 20th century. Punk Rock 45 Soundsystem! is introduced (and co-compiled) by Jon Savage, author of the acclaimed definitive history of punk, England's Dreaming. As well as the encyclopaedic visual imagery featured inside, the book also includes a number of interviews with celebrated designers involved in creating punk's original iconic imagery. The revolutionary do-it-yourself ethic of punk was applied to the aesthetic of design as much as it was to music, and record sleeves acted as lo-fi signifiers of anarchy, style, fashion, politics and more with an urban and suburban invective courtesy of the 1000s of new bands - punk, post-punk, pre-punk, nearly-punk and more - that emerged at the end of the 1970s. This book is an exhaustive, thorough and exciting celebration of the stunning artwork of punk music - everything from the most celebrated and iconic designs through to the stark beauty of the cheapest do-it-yourself lo-fi obscurities.

Love is the song we sing: San Francisco nuggets, 1965-1970 by Four decades ago, legions of young people trekked to San Francisco and its famed Haight Asbury district, the epicenter for the youth-driven counterculture revolution that was transforming American culture. They came for peace, politics, community, love...and they came for the music, the most enduring legacy of that very special place and time. It has proven to be the element that really tells the true story of San Francisco in the 1960s. The city, and the Bay Area overall, were exploding with spectacular talent, including pre-eminent icons the Grateful Dead, Santana and the Jefferson Airplane as well as countless other acts that brought San Francisco's expansive sonic vibe to national, and ultimately worldwide, prominence. And, just as aspiring hippies and youthful seekers of summer lovin' flocked westward to savor the Golden State's golden age, musical talent from across the country descended on the City by the Bay including Texan Janis Joplin and Chicagoan Steve Miller. They all added to the amazing stash of sounds that remains a cornerstone of contemporary music, and they're all featured here, superstars and lesser known talents alike. The set's four discs explore this musical phenomenon from diverse vantage points for a kaleidoscopic sonic tapestry that is both vintage and timeless.

The film follows Knight and a variety of young Muslim musicians on tour through the U.S. before bringing their music to Lahore, breaking taboos along the way-- from staging a lesbian thrash act at an Islamic convention to stomping on the American flag, or as Knight explains, giving the finger to both sides. Taqwacore charts their attempts to navigate the gap between their cultures and their countries, their religion and their individuality.
