9780140179705: From the Velvets to the Voidoids: A Pre-Punk History for a Post-Punk World

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.
