Babylon's Burning: From Punk to Grunge

Przednia okładka
Viking, 2007 - 694
In this enthralling history of punk and grunge, Clinton Heylin describes how the word 'punk' was coined by revered rock journalist Lester Bangs, and how the movement itself took hold in England with the Sex Pistols in the fore, closely followed by the Clash. Though it relates the movement to other political and social trends, this is essentially a history of music - showing the enourmous musical influence of the Pistols as they carried a raft of other bands from all over the UK in their wake.
