Punk : chaos to couture by Andrew Bolton ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its origins in the 1970s, punk has had an explosive influence on fashion. With its eclectic mixing of stylistic references, punk effectively introduced the postmodern concept of bricolage to the elevated precincts of haute couture and directional ready-to-wear. As a style, punk is about chaos, anarchy, and rebellion. Drawing on provocative sexual and political imagery, punks made fashion overtly hostile and threatening. This aesthetic of violence - even of cruelty - was intrinsic to the clothes themselves, which were often customized with rips, tears, and slashes, as well as studs, spikes, zippers, D-Rings, safety pins, and razor blades, among other things. This extraordinary publication examines the impact of punk's aesthetic of brutality on high fashion, focusing on its do-it-yourself, rip-it-to-shreds ethos, the antithesis of couture's made-to-measure exactitude. Indeed, punk's democracy stands in opposition to fashion's autocracy. Yet, as this book reveals, even haute couture has readily appropriated the visual and symbolic language of punk, replacing beads with studs, paillettes with safety pins, and feathers with razor blades in an attempt to capture the style's rebellious energy. Focusing on high fashion's embrace of punk's aesthetic vocabulary, this book reveals how designers have looked to the quintessential anti-establishment style to originate new ideals of beauty and fashionability
Beware of Mr. Baker ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The documentary about the ailing-yet-ferocious Ginger Baker, the brilliant and wildly self-destructive drummer for Cream and Blind Faith. An almost impossible man to be around, he allows the director unprecedented access--even if he strikes him violently on the nose with his cane on the final day of filming
Rotten : no Irish, no Blacks, no dogs : the authorized autobiography, Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols by John Lydon ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Much more than just a rock autobiography, this book is an oral history of punk : at once angry, witty, honest, poignant and crackling with energy. Malcolm McLaren, Sid Vicious, Chrissie Hynde, Billy Idol, Britain in the late seventies, the Pistol's explosion onto the moribund music scene and their implosion under the pressures of superstardom - all these and more are dissected with Lydon's scalpel-sharp pen, in perhaps the best book ever written about music and youth culture, by one of its notorious figures." - back cover
Never mind the bollocks here's the Sex Pistols by Sex Pistols (Musical group) ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film tells the story, song by song, of the making of the Sex Pistols' only studio album, "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols." Interviews with band members, their manager, producers, and graphic designer, as well as journalists and technicians present unique insights on the band as musicians. Along with concert footage, home movie footage, promotional videos, and early demo recordings, this film examines the music of the Sex Pistols, as opposed to their place in the social, economic, political, or cultural history of Britain. The Sex Pistols created something that, despite countless imitators, remains a phenomenon unprecedented in the annals of rock music
