The Story of Punk and Indie by Matt Anniss


The Story of Punk and Indie by Matt Anniss

From punk and indie's roots to today's mega-stars of the industry, The Story of Hip-Hop takes a detailed look at how musicians in the 1970s moved away from the safe world of pop and rock and exploded onto the scene with their anarchic style, political lyrics and attention-grabbing stage antics. Read about the Ramones, Greenday, the Clash and the evolution of punk into indie music where bands such as the Cure, Blondie and Nirvana rocked the charts. The Story of Punk and Indie is part of the series Pop Histories which takes a similarly detailed look at other popular musical genres.
