This lavishly illustrated book celebrates a wide range of punk design in posters, flyers, album cover art, fanzines and fashion ephemera from T-shirts to badges.

OH SO PRETTY

PUNK IN PRINT 1976-1980


Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-80 is an unrivalled collection of visually striking ephemera from Britain’s punk subculture. It presents 500 artefacts - 'zines,' gig posters, flyers, and badges - from well-known and obscure musical acts, designers, venues, and related political groups. While punk was first and foremost a music phenomenon, it reflected a DIY spirit and instantly recognizable aesthetic that was as raw and strident and irrepressible as the music. As disposable as the items in this book once were, together they tell a story about music, history, class, and art, and document a seismic shift in society and visual culture.

PUNK LONDON 1977


Punk. London.1977. Most people blinked and missed it. Many spent a decade trying to catch up. Derek Ridgers stumbled across it by accident, where it was, in the beating filthy heart of the Roxy in middle of a derelict slum called Covent Garden. Stumbling through the moshpits trying to keep hold of a borrowed camera. 1977. Punk London brings you 152 pages of photography featuring the birth of the the most exciting cultural phenomenon in UK history. Currents and vibes, flows and backwash, trends and anti-trends splashing around in the cauldron of youth culture in the city of London, and the lost rebels haunting their suburban bedrooms - jumping the train uptown to get into the legendary Roxy. All converged, for one priceless moment, an outpouring of a truly original, DIY, anarchic, underground scene. Ridgers captured the first wave. Kids in the crowd, never before seen. The punks who made their own clothes because you couldn't buy punk clothes. The punks who got beaten up time and again for making themselves into targets. Rebellion before it got easy. You won't see these kids anywhere in the magazines. They weren't trying to get famous. 1977 will happen again. 1977 is happening somewhere, for someone, right now.

SOME WEAR LEATHER SOME WEAR LACE


It was a scene that had many names: some original members referred to themselves as punks, others, new romantics, new wavers, the bats or the morbids. 'Goth' did not gain lexical currency until the late 1980s. But no matter what term was used, 'postpunk' encompasses all the incarnations of the 1980s alternative movement. Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace is a visual and oral history of the first decade of the scene. Featuring interviews with both the performers and the audience to capture the community on and off stage, the book places personal snapshots alongside professional photography to reveal a unique range of fashions, bands and scenes. A book about the music, the individual and the creativity of a worldwide community rather than theoretical definitions of a subculture, Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace considers a subject not often covered by academic books. Whether you were part of the scene or are just fascinated by different modes of expression, this book will transport you to another time and place.

VERSCHWENDE DEINE JUGEND


Als vor zehn Jahren "Verschwende Deine Jugend" erschien, war nicht abzusehen, welche Wirkung dieser Doku-Roman zum deutschen Punk und New Wave erzielen würde. Dem Überraschungsbestseller folgten nicht nur bald eine gleichnamige Doppel-CD und die Ausstellung in der Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, er wurde auch zum Auslöser des Punk-Revivals. Kein Wunder also, dass der Musikexpress das Buch zum Pop-Ereignis des Jahres wählte. In "Verschwende Deine Jugend" erzählen alle wichtigen Protagonisten der Szene, wie durch die englische Punk-Explosion von 1977 erstmals auch eine deutschsprachige Popkultur möglich wurde. Hier kommen nicht nur Bands wie Fehlfarben, DAF, Palais Schaumburg oder Abwärts zu Wort und Popmusiker wie Campino, Blixa Bargeld oder Nina Hagen, sondern auch über Punk sozialisierte Künstler wie Ben Becker oder Markus Oehlen.

ALS DIE WELT NOCH UNTERGING


Eine Chronik zur Entstehung und Entwicklung von Punk und New Wave im deutschsprachigen Raum bis 1985.

Als die Welt noch unterging. war vieles möglich. Die Endzeitstimmung um 1980 gab Punk und New Wave erst den nötigen Schub. Sie sorgte für einen unglaublichen Ausbruch von Aktivität und Kreativität. Vorm Hintergrund des atomaren Wettrüstens glaubte niemand mehr an eine große Zukunft - deshalb war plötzlich alles erlaubt, ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste. Davon erzählt dieses Buch. 

Frank Apunkt Schneider entfaltet die Geschichte der Neuen Deutschen Welle und des deutschen Punk-Underground bis hinein in Regional-, Kassetten- und Fanzine-Szenen. Neben den mittlerweile kanonisierten Klassikern dieser Bewegung, (z. B. DAF, Fehlfarben) rückt er sowohl Chartbreaker wie Trio oder Extrabreit als auch Underground-Acts wie Kosmonautentraum, Familie Hesselbach etc. in den Fokus. 

"Als die Welt noch unterging" ist das mit Abstand umfangreichste Buch zur Neuen Deutschen Welle. Mit kommentierter Diskografie und einer Kassettografie im Anhang, die für die neue Auflage zusätzlich erweitert wurden.
