The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Ramones, The Heartbreakers, Siouxsie and the Banshees all have had a chance to speak in this book which gives voice to the punk generation. 25 years on, it remembers the mad, frenzied and often incoherent world of 1975-79. Variously described as middle class, working class, political, social, sexual, artistic, superficial, perverted, puerile and heroic, punk has always inspired controversy.
