Titel: The Truth of Revolution, Brother
Sub titel: A exploration of punk philosophy

'The Truth of Revolution, Brother' is a unique exploration of the philosophy of punk, based on the ideas, beliefs and lives of the people that created the movement. The punk explosion of the late 70s and early 80s changed the face of music, art, and fashion. But it didn't stop there. Punks were onto something really important. They had a unique view on an alternative way of living. 'The Truth of Revolution, Brother' is the result of a year spent with some of punkís most influential figures. From legendary British anarchos Crass to US stalwarts Fugazi and Dead Kennedys; first generation figures the Adverts to contemporary carrier of the flame Jeffrey Lewis, this groundbreaking book investigates the approaches and life choices made by the people associated with this most misunderstood genre. The result is truly life-affirming. From the fields of Essex to Icelandís corridors of power; the West Country to Washington DC, 30 interviews gently reveal a host of strategies for living that are more meaningful now than they were back in punkís heyday. Unique testament is mixed with thoughtful analysis and original art to create a true punk one-off.
