By the late 1970s the Punk explosion and the Punk aesthetic spread out from Britain to New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and into music, film, fashion and writing. The American Punk scene, far from being a poor impersonation of the British movement, soon developed an energy and talent of its own, which was documented in its own home-grown magazine, "Search and Destroy", edited by V. Vale between 1977 and 1979. Drawn from the pages of this underground magazine, this is a collection of interviews, photographs and documentation of the punk philosophy and culture. Capturing the rage, riot and revelations of the period, the book features Patti Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Nico, the Buzzcocks, the Clash, the Cramps, Siousxie, the Damned, Captain Beefheart, Throbbing Gristle, Devo, Iggy Pop, Cabaret Voltaire, the Dead Kennedys, and the Romones, alongside writers and filmmakers such as William Burroughs, J.G. Ballard, John Waters, Russ Meyer and David Lynch. --via Amazon.uk
