I read this cover to cover when I was in 6th grade and I wrote down the names that would change my life. Joy Division. Sex Pistols. The Damned. Buzzcocks. My mom bought it for my brother and I because we liked all the classic Beatles and Stones records. But the part on the New Wave is what intrigued me. This book is a huge marker in my life.
