Punk '77: an inside look at the San Francisco rock 'n' roll scene, 1977
Punk '77 covers the beginnings of the San Francisco Punk Rock scene through the Sex Pistols' final concert at Winterland in interviews and photographs by James Stark. James was among the many artists involved in the early punk scene. His photos were published in New York Rocker, Search & Destroy and Slash, among others. His posters for Crime are classics and highly prized collectors' items. This book contains over 100 photos, including many behind-the-scenes looks at the bands who made things happen: Nuns, Avengers, Crime, Screamers, Negative Trend, Dils, Germs, UXA, etc. Interviews with the bands and people on the scene give vivid, darkly humorous glimpses of events in a Please Kill Me (Legs McNeil) style. An authentic document of punk's beginnings.
