The first punk album was released in 1977 with The Damned’s debut, and era-defining singles by The Sex Pistols and The Clash followed, as well as key records by lesser acts like Buzzcocks and Tom Robinson. ’77 is a detailed history of all of the 200 UK punk or new wave artists who released a record in 1977, making the most complete document of the punk scene that thrived before punk’s revolutionary spirit burned out.

Synopsis:

As, 1967 was to the Haight-Ashbury scene, so 1977 was to punk: a year in which classic singles and albums by all the key bands made it the only musical movement that counted, and before its energy and potential was diluted and dampened by the forces of conservatism and commercialism. '77 tells the story of what every punk and new wave band achieved in that heady year - from The Pistols, Clash and Damned to The Lurkers, The Adverts and The Rezillos, and everyone in between.
