PUNK 45: The Singles Cover Art of Punk 1976-80 (STOCK EXPECTED 28th OCT 22)



Further Information

This new edition comes with a new introduction from Bobbie
Gillespie, founder of Primal Scream (who has recently also published
his memoirs, ?Tenement Kid?). Contributors include Peter Saville, Richard Hell, Richard H Kirk, Seymour Stein, Geoff Travis, Martin Moscrop, Glenn Branca, Jamie Reid, Dave Robinson, Roger Armstrong, Martin Mills, Gee Vaucher, Savage Pencil, Dennis Morris and more. 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. As well as the encyclopaedic visual imagery featured inside, the book
also includes interviews with a number of significant figures in punk
music: artists and groups, including Richard Hell, Martin Moscrop (A
Certain Ratio), Richard H Kirk (Cabaret Voltaire), Glenn Branca and
David Thomas (Pere Ubu); record label owners including Seymour
Stein (Sire Records), Geoff Travis (Rough Trade), Roger Armstrong
(Chiswick), Martin Mills (Beggars Banquet), Dave Robinson (Stiff
Records), David Brown (Dangerhouse); and the celebrated designers
involved in creating punk?s original iconic imagery - Peter Saville
(Factory Records), Jamie Reid (Sex Pistols), Gee Vaucher (Crass
Records) and Dennis Morris (Public Image Limited). 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.
