Certainly not definitive—how could any one book be?—but a fucking awesome collection of flyers, posters, photos, and anecdotes from the North American punk scene from 1977–1985. A collected 240 pages, and over 1,500 color photos and flyers. And all the luminaries provide some commentary—Jello Biafra, Dez Cadena, Joe Carducci, Gary Floyd, Lars Fredrickson, Penelope Houston, Joe Keithley, Tony Kinman, Fat Mike, Keith Morris, Pushead, Al Quint, Marc Rude, Corey Rusk, Winston Smith, Shawn Stern, Mike Watt, and a whole lot more. Incredible, amazing, and pretty much any other superlative you can think of. Take Hardcore California, Banned In DC, and Got To Land Somewhere, mash 'em all up, and you'll have some idea of how good this is...now in a tasty paperback edition.
