Even in terms of its broader cultural influence, it is arguable that punk had its most provocative repercussions long after its supposed demise.” (from the introduction)rnrnThe book is a compelling journey through a remarkable range of ideas and influences and portrays bands and musicians that reinvented the wheel of music culture in various ways: Public Image Limited, The Buzzcocks, Devo, Pere Ubu, The Pop Group, The Slits, Scritti Politti, Gang Of Four, Joy Division, Wire, Talking Heads, The Fall, Robert Wyatt, The Specials, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, The Human League, ABC, Art Of Noise und Frankie Goes To Hollywood, among others.
