This book chronicles the American punk music scene, from its roots in the 1960s, including The Velvet Underground and Heylin Asserts - still the most influential American band, through two "waves" of bands in the mid 1970s. Among the first wave, Patti Smith and the Ramones were prominent and among the second, Suicide, the Voidoids, and Pere Ubu, and subsequently bands like Talking Heads.

Summary: From the Velvets to the Voidoids explores the origins and evolution of the fiery phase of rock and roll history known as punk and New Wave. Journey through the life of this intense and influential musical movement, from the punk scene's New York roots in the mid-1960s with The Velvet Underground, through the 1970s and groups like the Voidoids, and ultimately to such bands as the Talking Heads. Heylin upends notions that this new music evolved in Britain, establishing authoritatively that its roots were distinctly American: only later would the music develop into its more popular English incarnation.
