Details

In October '76 the first punk single was released, The Damned's ëNew Roseí, and in December '76 the Bill Grundy incident took punk into the national consciousness. The stage was set.

1977 was the year where the burgeoning British punk scene went overground. The first punk album was released in February 1977 with The Damned's debut, and era-defining singles by The Sex Pistols (ëGod Save The Queení), The Clash (ëWhite Riotí) and The Jam (ëIn The Cityí) followed. But there were also records by the next division of acts like Alternative TV and Tom Robinson to lesser but fondly-cherished-by-aficionados groups such as The Banned, Eater, The Lurkers, Chelsea, The Vibrators et al.

'77 is a detailed history of all of the 200 UK (and Irish) punk or new wave artists who released a record (or appeared on a compilation) in 1977. This is by far the most complete document of the myriad punk groups that were thriving before punk's revolution burnt out and drifted into self-parody.

Includes 16-page color insert.
