9780140173055: From the Velvets to the Voidoids: Pre-punk History for the Post-punk World

This is a history of British punk's elder cousin, the punk musical scene in America from the late 1960s through to the mid 1970s, but particularly from 1974 to 1976. Some of the crucial figures are Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Patti Smith, Blondie, the Ramones, Television and Talking Heads. Sharing with British punk a disenchantment with the way rock was going, American punk was an important musical and sociological phenomenon.
