My mom gave me "Punk: the Definitive Record of a Revolution"
as a gift. I guess what I was hoping for was "Please Kill Me
" with more pictures. I loved
Please Kill Me.
There are lots of interesting pictures, yeah, but I was disappointed to find that the majority of the book is given over to kissing the asses of Malcolm McLaren/The Sex Pistols/Vivienne Westwood, like they defined all that is punk and that should be good enough for the likes of you. Really, they just made it cartoonish.
Still, good purchase for the pictures, even though the text (especially the captions) is annoyingly tiny.
