An updated reissue of what, along with England’s Dreaming, has become the acknowledged seminal work on punk. Barry Cain was at every major gig and interviewed all of the acts at the time. He was viewed as an ‘insider’ and his access was unrivalled. This book is a vibrant and fast-paced trip through an extraordinary year. Includes major new interviews with Sex Pistol - Johnny Rotten, Strangler - Hugh Cornwell and Rat Scabies of The Damned. The new edition features a brand new interview with Paul Weller.
