Quick Overview

As the Seventies drew to a close and the media declared punk dead and buried, a whole new breed of band was emerging from the gutter. Harder and faster than their '76-77 predecessors, not to mention more aggressive and political, the likes of Discharge, The Exploited and GBH were to prove not only more relevant but arguably just as influential.

Details

More than two years in the making and featuring hundreds of brand new interviews and photographs, Burning Britain is the true story of the UK punk scene from 1980 to 1984 told for the first time by the bands and labels who created it. Covering the country region by region, author Ian Glasper profiles not only both big names like Vice Squad, Anti Pasti, The Defects, Blitz, Anti-Nowhere League, Peter And The Test Tube Babies and the UK Subs but the more obscure Xtract, Skroteez and Soldier Dolls.

The grim reality of being a teenage punk rocker in Thatcher¹s Britain resulted in some of the most primal and potent music ever committed to plastic. Burning Britain is the definitive overview of that previously overlooked era.
