Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

1977: Punk rock music and fashion blew out of New York City, exploded in London, and caught like wildfire in San Francisco, Los Angeles and the world over. It developed concurrently everywhere, and every region had it's own identity. But it was in San Francisco and L.A. where the most radical behavior in stateside punk rock style and attitude was exhibited. It was anti-hippie, anti-disco, anti-parent and anti-nice. And it was shockingly new. These photos are ground zero of punk rock style—delirious innovation and a snarling takeover of youth culture still resonating more than 20 years hence.

Synopsis:

Some of the most celebrated individuals of punk legend--including Darby Crash, Iggy Pop, Lydia Lunch, and Sid Vicious--are captured in this collection of photos by Jim Jocoy. Full color.

Synopsis:

Travelling between San Francisco and LA, Jocoy shot portraits of every punk rock personality that caught his eye.
