Details

Written by Mark Perry, this book takes an irreverent retrospective look at the heady days of punk, featuring superb original photographs from the likes of Jill Furmanovsky and Pennie Smith and a full-length interview with TV and radion personality Danny Baker, who wrote for the original fanzine over 20 years ago at the start of their career. During its brief existence "Sniffin Glue" brilliantly chronicled the birth, rise and demise of punk rock in the UK.

Starting with a print run of a mere 50 copies, by Issue 3 the circulation was way into the thousands. Joined in the later issues by young co-writer Danny Baker, sales started to exceed expectations and by Issue 12 Mark Perry called it a day declaring it's existence too successful as he was keen to avoid accusations of becoming part of the established rock press. And for the collector there are all 12 issues of the magazine reproduced in their entirety.
