it was ok
bookshelves: music
Read in January, 2011

I don't really like the Sex Pistols a lot (but understand their place in music history) and I can't stand Malcom McLaren for the most part, but this mammoth of a book gives it all a perspective. Pretty comprehensive, Jon Savage gives us a good look at the UK punk scene, the corrupt product-oriented music industry, and the influence of punk in general on culture. For anyone really interested in music, I'd recommend. (Also, there's an excellent discography at the end of the book.)
