On punk literature

Postby gaetano on Fri Dec 15, 2017 2:48 pm

Hi,
I study at the university of Udine, Italy and I'm thinking of writing my Ph.D. thesis on British and American punk literature. I would start by concentrating on the British punk era, from 1976 to 1980, then on the punk/new wave scene in the US from early to late 80's.
Your knowledge on poetry and literature of the period would come very handy, my fellow PRFers. Tips on authors, works (poetry, prose, essays) and online resources would all be welcome.
Thank you in advance for your time.

Gaetano

If you can find the forced exposure book (they reprinted all of their issues in a book form) that'd do you pretty well for the 80s. Byron's stuff is really fun to read to this day.

My friend Brian Schill just published this, which I think is something that might be up your alley. Highly recommend

Here's two printed compilations of zines that I've read and can guarantee that are worth reading.

1. Vique Martin "Simba: A Collection of Personal and Political Writings from the 90s Hardcore Scene" http://vitriolrecords.bigcartel.com/product/vique-martin-simba-a-collection-of-personal-and-political-writings-from-the-90s-hardcore-scene

2. Despite Everything: A Cometbus Omnibus https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/160143.Despite_Everything (all-time favourite. Highly recommended!)

I've heard about "Our band could be your life"(M. Azzerard) and "Get in the van"(H. Rollins) but haven't bothered yet to dive in further.

Cheers!
