Punk and New Wave What was punk, and is it dead? Let's take those questions in reverse order. No it's not. And it's a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For the purposes of this book, punk was a genre of music and fashion that flourished in Britain and America at the end of the 1970s. New Wave was the collection of artists who came along in the wake of punk, mostly lasting longer in the business and having, arguably, a longer lasting effect. This book is unapologetically Anglo-centric. Not only because it's being written from the UK, by someone who lived through the musical revolutions of the late 70s, but because a very strong case can be made for the UK's punk bands being of greater variety and significance than their American counterparts. No-one's denying the importance of the bands who played CBGBs in New York, and a good few of them have made the cut here. And no-one would suggest punk would have come about without US predecessors like the New York Dolls and Iggy Pop. But, let's be honest, most record buyers in between the US coasts saw their way to the turn of the eighties happily listening to Journey, Heart and Aerosmith without the thought of piercing their nostrils with a safety pin or wearing a tampon as an earring. So, with apologies to the US acts who've not made this book (Television nearly did, The Knack were never going to ) we hope you'll like the 33-and-a-third acts who are in here. Kev F.
