Auteur: Gimarc, George
Titel: Punk Diary
Sub titel: Ultimate Trainspotter's Guide to Underground Rock 1970-82
An exhaustive month by month documentation of punk, starting in August 1970 with the release of the Stooges' second LP, and ending on December 31 1982, with the release of Husker Du's Everything Falls Apart on their own Reflex Records. Inbetween, you'll find 700 oversize pages stuffed full of facts, trivia, opinions, releases, discographies and pictures galore. If that's not enough, there's a bonus CD full of vintage interviews (from that time period) with everyone from Gang Of Four to the Ramones, U2 to Ultravox, not to mention the Psychedelic Furs, Stiv Bators, Damned, XTC and 2 dozen more, conducted by the author during his stint as Texas DJ. A fascinating, and dare I say, seminal compendium.
