    This was the second of the two early books on punk rock (after “Punk” by Julie Davis”). Caroline Coon (a writer for Melody Maker and future manager of the Clash) wrote this more professional book that shows the beginnings of punk in the UK. From the cover picture of Johnny Rotten to the fine coverage of punk as it exploded across the UK and Europe this book takes a serious look at punk and tries to explain its creation. It quickly dispels the idea that the Ramones show in London on July 4, 1976 This was the second of the two early books on punk rock (after “Punk” by Julie Davis”). Caroline Coon (a writer for Melody Maker and future manager of the Clash) wrote this more professional book that shows the beginnings of punk in the UK. From the cover picture of Johnny Rotten to the fine coverage of punk as it exploded across the UK and Europe this book takes a serious look at punk and tries to explain its creation. It quickly dispels the idea that the Ramones show in London on July 4, 1976 somehow kick-started punk as the Pistols had already played their first show in November of 1975 and were on their way to antagonizing the music establishment. The book goes on to cover other early bands focusing on the Pistols, Clash, Damned, Stranglers and the Slits. This is really a time machine to 1976/1977 when the music establishment was confronted with something that was truly different and threatened their existence. The title always puzzled me – why 1988? In the conclusion Caroline Coon boldly predicts that the force of punk will still be felt into 1988. As we enter 2018 – it’s good to see that Caroline has misjudged the longevity of punk and that it’s still around and causing problems in 2018. This book also seems to badly in need of a reprint.
