never mind the bollocks, here’s a Punk History reading list

i read a lot of books about music in my leisure time, whether it’s a biography of a specific artist or the history of different genres. one such style that has a large number of publications available is Punk, as noted by a recent article on Book Riot. it was one of the most important musical revolutions of the 20th Century, and it’s only fitting that volumes have been written about it in the past 35 years or so. if you’re looking for some late summer reading, look no further! most of these titles can be found online, at used bookstores, or even at your local library.

{author’s note: the most recent one i picked up is Anger Is An Energy by John Lydon. i had the privilege of meeting Mr. Lydon at a book signing several months ago. despite the public’s preconceived notion of his personality, he’s actually a pretty normal guy.}
