I don’t recall whether I wrote this or not, but in any event, here’s what the back cover says:
The story of the punk revolution as told by the punks who were there and through the T-shirts they wore.
Punk has always been about so much more than the music—it is a philosophy and way of life, expressed visually in how punks choose to dress. Punk fashion was, and still is, an art form in its own right, with the punk T-shirt at its centre.
From the very earliest days of punk rock, with the Stooges and the New York Dolls, through the iconic core of punk with the Ramones, the Damned, the Sex Pistols, the Clash and many more, into new wave, hardcoreand SoCal punk, the T-shirt has emblazoned punk’s most powerful iconography.
For the first time, this book brings together 125 of the boldest, most outrageous and most arresting designs with gig reviews and original interviews from those who were there (the famous and the fans) in a celebration of all things punk.
